Applied Economics and Public Policyby Iain Begg, Brian Henry
Pub. Date: 04/01/1998
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book contains a collection of specially commissioned papers in which leading economists explore the role of applied economics in informing public policy. The contributions cover macroeconomic modeling, the use of company data to assess economic performance, techniques for data gathering and policy analysis. The book covers a variety of research methods and shows how these have been used in practice to elucidate economic problems. Applied economics is both an art and a science, and this book demonstrates why.
