Challenging such established ideas as the inevitability of the business cycle and the taboo on deficit spending, the group of economists associated with the Kennedy Council of Economic Advisers attempted in the 1960s to convert their theories into government policy. The successes, failures, elations. and frustrations of what came to be called the New Economics is the subject of James Tobin's fascinating account, based on the Janeway Lectures given at Princeton in 1972. In making his assessment of the New Economics, Professor Tobin draws on his close involvement in policymaking during the Kennedy years. Originally published in 1974. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
