Handbook of Global Economic Policy

Excerpt

This handbook on global economic policy is one in a set of six global policy handbooks. The other five deal with technology, social, political, international, and legal policy.

Public policy studies in the past have tended to emphasize domestic policy, rather than cross-national policy. This is especially true of American policy studies which tend to be especially nation-bound. This is also true to some extent of policy studies in France, Russia, China, Brazil, and elsewhere.

When American policy studies show an interest in other countries, those other countries tend to be exclusively Western European countries. This six-vol-ume set, however, will include all the regions of the world, consisting of Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin and North America in alphabetical order with Western Europe being only one of the several regions.

Public policy studies also tend to place a lot of emphasis on methods of analysis and the policy process. They do not get much into substance, especially at the professional or scholarly level, as contrasted to undergraduate textbooks. This is so because scholars have traditionally considered substance to be not as philosophical or theoretical as methods or process.

In this six-volume set, however, each volume is devoted to a different substantive field, including economic, technology, social, political, international, and legal policy. The discussions will be more theoretical than most substantive discussions because they will emphasize comparisons across places, across times, and across different substantive fields. At the same time, the discussions will be practical in terms of applicability to real world problems.
