Series: Contributions to Economic Analysis

The book series Contributions to Economic Analysis was established by North-Holland under the editorship of Jan Tinbergen in 1952. Its purpose ever since has been to stimulate the international exchange of scientific information and to reinforce international cooperation by publishing original research in applied economics. The editors and authors of the series represent a broad range of geographic and subject matter interests in economics, and the series includes books from all areas of macroeconomics and microeconomics. These books have in common a quantitative approach to economic problems of practical importance.

Authors of monographs are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to one of the editors for consideration, preferably as soon as a complete draft is available. Authors have the opportunity to revise a manuscript after it is accepted for publication. Manuscripts will be evaluated initially by the editors. Those found suitable for the series in terms of scope and importance of subject matter, length (usually 300-450 pages in manuscript), and style of presentation will then be appraised by an expert referee. The principal criterion is whether the research is of sufficient quality and originality to be a contribution to economic analysis.

Organizers of collective volumes should send a proposal to one of the editors as early as possible in the planning of a project. The proposal should include a preliminary list of articles and a tentative schedule for production. These will be evaluated by the editors in terms of coherence and significance of subject matter, reputation of the contributors, and timeliness of the production schedule. Organizers of the volume must arrange for each article to be carefully refereed as part of the production process. The criterion for inclusion of an article must be the same as for a monograph, namely, quality and orginality as a contribution to economic analysis.

Book Series: International Comparisons of Prices, Output and Productivity

Most recent volume

Volume 231. International Comparisons of Prices, Output and Productivity

Published: 29th March 1996 Editors: J. Salazar-Carrillo D.S. Prasada Rao
The present volume provides a timely collection of material on the subject of international comparisons, contributed by leading scholars from an extensive range of relevant disciplines and geographical backgrounds. The papers in this volume have been classified into two broad groups united by overlapping themes. Part I includes essentially empirical papers intended to provide a clear picture of the different types of international comparisons that have been undertaken by various organizations and individuals. The papers relate to empirical studies of different sectoral and national income aggregates at both regional and global levels. The papers in Part II deal with methodological and analytical issues. Discussion of the appropriateness of various aggregation methods for international comparisons accounts for a major component of this section.

The volume provides a set of stimulating studies on international comparisons of prices, output and productivity, and will provide a useful reference source for many interested readers around the world.
