Product description


This book will certainly spark a debate that policymakers, academics and informed citizens cannot ignore. (Arab News)

This is an ambitious, though-provoking and well-written book that addresses the big macroeconomic questions of the day from an authoritative voice outside the mainstream. You may or may not agree with the conclusions, but it makes for a great, rewarding and stimulating read. (Claudio Borio, Head of the Monetary and Economic Department, Bank for International Settlements)

Roger Farmer is an exceptional macroeconomist, whose contributions span the range from deep theory to high policy relevance. He argues that beliefs should be as fundamental as preferences, technology, and endowments. Farmer's delightful examples and metaphors deepen understanding and add fun to reading the book. His questions and arguments make the book as fascinating to read as a detective story. (William A. Barnett, Oswald Distinguished Professor of Macroeconomics, University of Kansas and Center for Financial Stability)

Unafraid of challenging conventional macroeconomics, Farmer is second to none for presenting his view in a pedagogical way without sacrificing their sharpness. (Michel De Vroey, Professor Emeritus, University of Louvain)

Farmer sees a future free from stock market crashes and deep recessions, problems that he traces to financial panics fed by lender mischief and by abrupt swings in investor psychology. Inventing policies to manage market psychology will be no cakewalk but the task is important, and a serious public conversation about it seems long overdue. Policymakers, academics and informed citizens who want to join this conversation will find lots of help in Farmers book. (Costas Azariadis, Edward Mallinckrodt Distinguished Professor in Arts & Sciences, Washington University, and Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis)

In this book, Professor Farmer challenges contemporary macroeconomic analysis. This book will no doubt generate debate, from which our profession will surely gain an improved understanding of economic processes. (Arnold Harberger, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of California Los Angeles and University of Chicago)

If you are looking for a lively sketch of mainstream macroeconomics spiced with a provocative alternative model and proposal for achieving full employment by stabilizing asset prices, this is the book you need. Here is the rare treat of an economist who both knows his field and has contributed to it standing back and writing about it in an accessible, non-technical way. (Michael Parkin, Professor Emeritus of Economics, University of Western Ontario)
