Guide to further reading
The best introduction to US economic data is Sommers with Blau (1988). An up-to-date view of the US economy and of the contemporary issues is provided by Obey and Sarbanes (1986). Hibbs (1987) gives an excellent empirical study of the relationship between economic policy and US politics. Feldstein (1980) contains many interesting pieces on the US economy. Schick (1983) and McKay (1985) give excellent introductions to the structure of American policy-making and its interaction with other political issues. Stein (1969) is a highly readable and thoughtful account of the influence of Keynesian ideas on US policy and he also gives an up-to-date view of policy in Stein (1985). Hansen (1964) provides useful comment on the US as seen mid-way through the period. Stockman (1986) is a must for an inside view of policy-making under Reagan and Cagan (1986 and 1987) discusses in detail the economics of the Reagan period.
