Series International Papers in Political Economy

The International Papers in Political Economy (IPPE) series explores the latest developments in political economy. This tenth volume offers a refreshing perspective on the prospects of fiscal and debt policies. The study focuses on the future, instead of reviewing these policies in relation to the recent and not so recent past. This volume provides analysis on wide range of countries and regions, including detailed analysis on the UK, Germany and the Economic and Monetary Union, Spain, France, China and the US. The volume also deals with more general issues of fiscal policy and debt policies, and provides a greater overview on democracy, technocracy and public policymaking.

This book offers detailed analysis and informed comment on the future of emerging economic policies. It is essential reading for all postgraduates and scholars looking for expert discussion and debate on the issues surrounding economic policy.
