"Macro is moving fast, partly because of technological progress and new data, partly because of the intellectual shocks triggered by the crisis. This handbook, like its predecessors, gives us the current state of the arts." --Olivier Blanchard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"The new volumes in the Handbook of Macroeconomics illustrates both the richness and the enormous breadth of modern research in macroeconomics. The chapters offer in depth surveys of critical areas, new empirical results to guide future researchers, analytical and computational tools for addressing macroeconomic issues, and examples of how these tools can be applied to advance our understanding of aggregate economic behavior. These volumes constitute an important resource for all macroeconomists, one that is certain to be widely used." --Carl E. Walsh, University of California, Santa Cruz
"This Handbook is the ideal starting point to get up to speed quickly on any major topic in Macroeconomics: What we have learned and what are the most pressing open questions." --Pete Klenow, Stanford University
