Hassan Bougrine, Louis-Philippe Rochon and the expert contributors to this book explore issues of economic growth and full employment; presenting a clear explanation to stagnation, recessions and crises, including the latest Global Financial Crisis of 2007-8. With a central focus on the role played by government spending, deficits and debt as well as the setting of interest rates, the chapters propose alternative policies that can be used by central banks and fiscal authorities to deal with problems of income inequality, unemployment and slow productivity.

Students and professors of economics, policymakers interested in alternative policies, academics and scholars in all fields will benefit from the explorations therein and would do well to seek out the companion publication, Credit, Money and Crises in Post-Keynesian Economics, also published by Edward Elgar Publishing.

‘This volume brings together some of the finest cutting-edge research in contemporary macroeconomics. It’s a fitting tribute to Marc Lavoie and Mario Seccareccia, but beyond that it will become an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to understand current patterns of economic growth and development across the world.’
– Jayati Ghosh, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi
