Elgar PP Cheltenham, UK; Northampton, MA, USA YR 2000 SN 1840642831 9781840642834 1840649321 9781840649321 AB "This collection tackles the issues confronting the up and coming economist. The authors include some of the subject's finest luminaries who offer friendly and invaluable advice as well as providing a more light-hearted look at the publication process. Some articles have become classics in their own right. They vary from an examination of seminal (and originally rejected) articles by leading economists to an analysis of why referees are not adequately paid. The tools of both economic theory and econometrics are applied to uncover some home truths and, as a result, these papers provide new insights into the nature of economic discourse."--BOOK JACKET.
