Overview

As the twenty-first century looms ahead, it is becoming increasingly clear that economic life will be different on the other side of the millennium. In Twenty-First Century Economics, the editors have assembled a group of leading economists and scholars to provide authoritative analyses of the powerful forces now shaping economic systems and to estimate where these trends are headed.
