William Vickrey is established as one of the truly important figures in contemporary economics. During a long and distinguished career he published several books and some 140 papers scattered over many journals. This book offers a thoughtful selection from these papers, organised so as to bring out the broad scope, and also the unity, of his work. Vickrey had the unique distinction of having contributed, often seminally and always operationally, to all major branches of public economics. The papers collected here cover Social Choice and Allocation Mechanisms, Taxation, Pricing in Public Utilities and in Urban Transportation, Urban Economics and Macroeconomic Policies. Each topic is introduced by on of the four editors, and the book is completed with a full annotated bibliography of Vickrey's work. For the first time, we have convenient access to a set of important, creative and stimulating contributions, which have helped shape the modern field of public economics. This is a fascinating overview of the field and of the lifetime work of a great economist

"Collecting Nobel Laureate William S. Vickrey's articles on macroeconomic theory and policy written towards the end of his career, this volume demonstrates his enduring commitment to full employment and price stability, and his rejection of conventional macroeconomic theorizing. William Vickrey never lost hope that sensible macroeconomic policy could be understood and implemented, a faith inspired by his humanistic vision of a better world for all and his belief that common sense would ultimately prevail." "Advocating sensible economic policies, this collection will offer much of value to heterodox and orthodox economists, graduate economics students and also policy makers."--BOOK JACKET
