What People are Saying About This

The contributors to this volume are in each case economists who have been in the forefront in applying economic analysis in a policy setting. Their essays are concise, clear, and consistently written at a level within the reach of undergraduate economics students. Each addresses an area of public policy in which economic reasoning and research methods have been applied successfully to generate a policy change or refinement, leading to a large increase in welfare.
