About this product
- DescriptionThe severity of the Great Recession and the subsequent stagnation caught many ecomists by surprise. But a group of Keynesian scholars warned for some years that strong forces were leading the US toward a deep, persistent downturn. This book collects essays about these events from prominent macroecomists who developed a perspective that predicted the broad outline and many specific aspects of the crisis. From this point of view, the recovery of employment and revival of strong growth requires more than short-term monetary easing and temporary fiscal stimulus. Ecomists and policy makers need to explore how the process of demand formation failed after 2007 and where demand will come from going forward. Successive chapters address the sources and dynamics of demand, the distribution and growth of wages, the structure of finance and challenges from globalization, and inform recommendations for monetary and fiscal policies to achieve a more efficient and equitable society.
- Author BiographyBarry Cynamon is a Research Associate at the Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government and Public Policy at the Washington University, St Louis. His early research on the US consumer age of the past quarter century linked rising household spending and debt to group interactions and cultural norms. This work was published in 2008, just as the 'risk of collapse' it identified played out to become known as the Great Recession. He has also published research on both monetary and fiscal policy and is Chief Financial Officer of GLC Investments, a renewable energy investment management firm. He holds an MBA from the University of Chicago.

He received a Ph.D. in economics from Stanford University in 1982.

His teaching awards include the 2002 Missouri Governor's award for excellence in university teaching, the 2007 Emerson Award for teaching excellence and Washington University's distinguished faculty award, also in 2007. Mark Setterfield is Professor of Economics at Trinity College, Hartford, Associate Member of the Cambridge Centre for Economic and Public Policy at the University of Cambridge, and Senior Research Associate at the International Economic Policy Institute, Laurentian University, Canada.
