Keynesian Economics, Unemployment, and Policy by Roger E. Backhouse

In these two volumes, a group of distinguished economists debate the way in which evidence, in particular econometric evidence, can and should be used to relate macroeconomic theories to the real world. Topics covered include the business cycle, monetary policy, economic growth, the impact of new econometric techniques, the IS-LM model, the labor market, new Keynesian macroeconomics, and the use of macroeconomics in official documents.
