The ... volumes have many strengths. They will be comprehensive, up to date, and linked to web sites with additional information. The papers to be included will be readable and therefore accessible to a wide audience. The plans to have more than one paper on the same subject and to include all schools of thought are especially appealing. The volume has in my view no weaknesses. Michael Grossman, National Bureau of Economic Research, USA
