About this book

Introduction

The relation between structural reform and macroeconomic policy underlies the widespread perception that the large European economies have under-performed in the past decade in comparison both with their own standards and with the contemporaneous performance of the United States. This book, edited and introduced by Noel Laureate Robert M. Solow, provides analyses of how these economies could take a co-ordinated and simultaneous approach to reform in labour and product markets and the demand side.
