Summary This volume presents the latest thoughts of as brilliant group of young economists on one of the most persistent economic problems facing the United States ad the world, inflation. Rather than attempting an encyclopedic effort or offering specific policy recommendations, the contributors have emphasized the diagnosis of problems and the description of events that economists most thoroughly understand. Reflecting a dozen diverse views-many of which challenge established orthodoxy-they illuminate the economic and political processes involved in this important issue.
