A Selective Survey of the Literature

Chapter

Abstract

International economic policy coordination is not merely an economic issue, it is and has also to be treated as a political topic. Consequently, this article aims to provide a selective survey not only of relevant economic literature, but also of political economy literature on international macroeconomic coordination.1 Particular emphasis will be placed on surveying the literature both on an analytical level, with a focus on divergent methodologies, and on a level of substance, where the coordination topic’s key questions are touched upon.2
