Book presentation on February 14: John H. Cochrane "The Fiscal Theory of the Price Level"

John H. Cochrane will present his book "The Fiscal Theory of the Price Level," published in January, at a book launch on Feb. 14. The economist, who also runs the blog "The Grumpy Economist," is a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institute.

Where do inflation and deflation ultimately come from? John Cochrane aims to make fiscal theory useful as a conceptual framework and modeling tool, and for analyzing history and policy. He generalizes the theory to explain data and make realistic predictions. Cochrane offers an extensive rethinking of monetary doctrines and institutions through the eyes of fiscal theory, and analyzes the era of zero interest rates and post-pandemic inflation.
