Summary "This book discusses ways of improving macroeconomic policy by varying the combinations of monetary policy with different sorts of government outlays and revenue to deal with the combinations of problems experienced during the past twenty years or so. It draws upon various forms of empirical evidence to show that the use of targets, such as the budget deficit, is not helpful for finding the appropriate combinations of measures. There is also a discussion of various types of wage and income policies as a means of achieving macroeconomic objectives."--BOOK JACKET.
