This, the companion volume provides the counterpoint to the Monetary Analysis writings in Volume 3A. Here the theme of macroeconomic engineering confronting politico-economic and socio-economic reality comes to the fore. The politics of monetary policy, inflation targeting, the clash between monetary and fiscal policy are all addressed. The question of robustness in macroeconomic policy making is considered. This volume provides a valuable source for those concerned with increasing our understanding of the links between theory and practice Martin Shubik, Yale University Monetary Economics has made great strides since the HANDBOOK OF MONETARY ECONOMICS, Volumes 1 and 2 was published.
