Public Administration and Public Policy #78: Handbook of Global Economic Policyby Stuart S. Nagel.
Synopses & Reviews
Written by over 20 leading international economists, this book offers "win-win" scenarios to economic problems. As in the other volumes of this set of public policy handbooks, the "Handbook of Global Economic Policy" employs a unique organizational principle: from viewing economic problems from conservative and liberal perspectives, to developing practical, non-ideological solutions to the problems, and finally testing the solution's feasibility in terms of economic, administrative, political, psychological, legal, international, and technological obstacles. The authors confront conventional wisdom about trade-off's between unemployment and inflation, economic growth and displaced workers, and capitalism and socialism.
