Behavioural Macroeconomics

The International Library of Critical Writings in Economics series

Edited by Ian M. McDonald, Professor of Economics, University of Melbourne, Joint Editor, Australian Economic Review and Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences, Australia

This invaluable volume brings together seminal articles with a significant behavioural content on various areas in macroeconomics. The topics covered include a historical perspective on psychology and economics, social norms and macroeconomics, the nature of unemployment, unemployment and inflation, consumption and saving, the causes of the global financial crisis, economic growth and happiness and income distribution and the underclass.

‘I only wish that Ian McDonald’s Behavioural Macroeconomics had been available when I was preparing A Guide to Behavioral Economics; it certainly would have provided me with material to fill in a number of gaps and cite several additional important concerns!’
– Hugh Schwartz, University of the Republic, Uruguay
