In this study, a uniquely qualified team of economists and policy-makers discuss the economic experience of the 1960s. They examine the conditions which enabled the post-World War II boom to last for such a long time, and the factors which finally brought it to an end.

The decade of the 1960s was rich in policy experiments\Mmany that tried to curb inflation, and others that aimed to increase productivity. In retrospect, neither strategy proved successful. The economic problems that emerged are still on the agenda, and this book concludes by assessing

the extent to which policy mistakes of the sixties were responsible for these conflicts.
