Presenting innovative perspectives on macroeconomics at the national and international levels, Harris and Goodwin, both affiliated with the Tufts University Global Development and Environment Institute, bring together contributions on current issues of globalization, inequality and unemployment, national and international debt, and the relationship of macroeconomic policies to the environment. Contributors in economics, business, and finance provide insight into debates on macroeconomic policy in the US and Europe, as well as in developing and transitional economies. Case studies and examples bring theoretical debates to life. The audience for the book includes researchers and students in macroeconomics, and policy makers.
