About this book
This text provides comprehensive coverage of the core elements of economic policy, from both microeconomic and macroeconomic approaches. The authors have placed policy in its historical and political context so that readers can appreciate the theoretical roots. In particular, the effects of globalisation and membership of the European Union upon policy are considered. This book will be particularly appropriate for introductory courses on economic policy and economics courses with a particular policy emphasis.
