Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Discusses links between primary commodity prices and the OECD rate of unemployment. A descriptive account of the main facts and a VAR analysis help define the essential features of the macroeconomic model which constitutes the core of this book. The model simultaneously determines the industrialized countries' economic activity, primary commodity prices, the world real interest rate, and LDC external debt, accounting for both the impact of primary prices on the OECD economy as well as feedback running from other global markets to the OECD economy. The author teaches economic policy at the University of Bergamo, Italy. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
