The Holy Grail of Macroeconomics: Lessons from Japans Great Recession by Richard C. Koo
Wiley | English | 2009 | ISBN: 0470824948 | 266 pages | PDF | 17 MB
The revised edition of this highly acclaimed work presents crucial lessons from Japan's recession that could aid the US and other economies as they struggle to recover from the current financial crisis.
This book is about Japan's 15-year long recession and how it affected current theoretical thinking about its causes and cures. It has a detailed explanation on what happened to Japan, but the discoveries made are so far-reaching that a large portion of economics literature will have to be modified to accommodate another half to the macroeconomic spectrum of possibilities that conventional theorists have overlooked.
