Book Review - THE ECONOMISTS’ VOICE by Stiglitz, J.E., A.S. Edlin, and J.B. DeLong (eds.), Columbia University Press. New York
AbstractThe Economists’ Voice presents a series of small papers by prominent economists on subject areas within the general discipline of economics that are regarded as highly topical. All in all, there are 35 chapters in the volume. These chapters are divided into 9 main themes – which include climate change, the international economy, the Iraq war, fiscal policy, social security, tax reform, social policy, the death penalty and real estate. With the exception of the section on the death penalty – where there is something of a debate taking place amongst the chapters – each section and each paper within it are essentially self-contained. Each paper takes a look at a specific aspect of the theme and presents an argument or two before offering a conclusion of policy implication.
