Quantum Macroeconomics : The legacy of Bernard Schmitt (Hardcover)
about this item
In the first part of this volume, leading scholars explain the historical origin and analytical content of quantum macroeconomics. The second part explores its relevance with respect to the current major economic issues such as the sovereign debt crisis and European monetary union. The volume also features two previously unpublished papers by Bernard Schmitt. The main findings of this book concern the need to go beyond agents’ behaviour to understand the structural origin of a variety of macroeconomic problems, notably, inflation, unemployment, financial instability, and economic crises. The originality that pervades all contributions is plain
, when one considers the lack of any structural explanation of national and international economic disorders in the literature within the mainstream approach to economics.
This edited volume is of great interest to those who study macroeconomics, monetary economics and money and banking.
