'Teachers of macroeconomics are already obliged to Snowdon and Vane (and Wynarczyk) for their success in persuading our students that this is a subject where they will find a lively ongoing debate on vital issues and not just a compilation of exam exercises. Their new Encyclopedia will be a splendid supplement not only to their own but to anybody's textbook. Many of the short essays are little gems. It will be a rare teacher who does not himself (herself) find a lot to learn from browsing in it.' - Axel Leijonhufvud, University of Trento, Italy 'The editors of this volume already have a number of innovative and useful texts and essay collections (1994, 1997, 1999) to their credit. Their Encyclopedia of Macroeconomics is comparably valuable as a basic reference book for 21st Century students and teachers.' - Robert W. Clower, University of South Carolina, US, Brasenose College, Oxford, UK and University of California, Los Angeles, US the Encyclopedia of Macroeconomics is an authoritative and invaluable reference source on macroeconomics, which embraces definitions of terms and concepts, conflicting ideological approaches and the contributions of major thinkers. Comprehensive in scope, it contains over 300 short entries and more than 100 specially commissioned main entries from an internationally renowned group of scholars.
