About the Authors
  • This book contains a collection of specially commissioned papers in which leading economists explore the role of applied economics in informing public policy. The contributions cover macroeconomic modeling, the use of company data to assess economic performance, techniques for data gathering and policy analysis. The book covers a variety of research methods and shows how these have been used in practice to elucidate economic problems. Applied economics is both an art and a science, and this book demonstrates why.

    • Brings together work in the tradition of the Department of Applied Economics in Cambridge, with contributions from leading economists
    • It provides a snapshot of different approaches to applied economics and exemplifies the careful work needed to obtain worthwhile results
    • Use of applied economics for policy purposes requires a mix of theory, technique and judgement, the text shows how this can be achieved
