Speculative Bubbles Speculative Attacks And Policy Switching. Robert Flood and Peter Garber confess to a "fixation on understanding extreme events" such as speculative bubbles, currency reforms, and speculative attacks on fixed exchange rate regimes and metallic monetary standards—all markers of economic change. This book brings together their research in these areas during the 1980s and early 1990s, highlighting in particular the close relation of their work on bubbles to that of policy switching, or understanding the impact of prospective and past policy changes on individual economic behavior. Among the earliest contributors to the policy switching literature, Flood and Garber note that policy switching has become popular because the approach permits economists to come to grips with peculiar behavior that surrounds crises and other discrete events. The approach has also allowed economists to combine their understanding of economic behavior in times of crisis with observations of behavior during more normal times. The papers in the book are grouped into three sections: the first on price bubbles is primarily financial; the second on speculative attacks (on exchange rate regimes) is international in scope; and the third, on policy switching, is concerned with monetary policy.

Who S Who In Economics. 'Who's Who in Economics is indispensable for any library and department of economics, as well as for individual scholars playing an active role in the academic community. No other source presents so many facts on the leading economists as conveniently and reliably. . . . Blaug's volume is not only an outstanding source of information on individual economists, but it also provides a rich database for research on the economics profession. Thus, several academic articles systematically analysed the second edition, and Blaug explicitly invites research based on the third edition.' - Bruno S. Frey and Reiner Eichenberger, Kyklos '. . . valuable reference book. . . . Such an inviting book. . . . Thumbing through the entries in Who's Who in Economics does give a unique insight into the concerns and findings of the world's leading economists. . .' - Robert Whaples, EH.Net This major reference work has been thoroughly revised, updated and extended for the third edition. It is the only biographical dictionary of major economists to appear in any language. As an extensive and authoritative guide to economists both past and present who have made a substantial contribution to the subject, it provides biographical, bibliographical and critical information on over one thousand living economists and some five hundred deceased economists.
