not yet rated|write a review
This analysis of Israel's successful stabilization program challenges current thinking on macroeconomic policy. It reviews and examines the take-off of runaway inflation and of the subsequent stabilization policy in what can be seen as laboratory conditions. Since Israel's stabilization policy is one of only two which have actually succeeded, it offers important lessons to all East European and many Latin American countries in the design and implementation of these programs. Professional economists concerned with macroeconomics, money, credit and banking, monetary and banking theory, economic policy, and inflation and stabilization, as well as Latin American and East European scholars, will find this work extremely informative.
