Joe JacksonSenior Editor (Economics)
Economics is a fundamental part of our publishing at PUP. The list is populated by enduring classics, including von Neumann and Morgenstern’s Theory of Games and Economic Behavior (1944), Friedman and Schwartz’s A Monetary History of the United States, 1876-1960 (1963), and Reinhart and Rogoff’s This Time Is Different (2009). I seek to build on this tradition by publishing the most definitive and innovative works in the discipline, which itself is growing and changing and ever more important to the real world. Books I hope to acquire address a huge range of topics, from jobs, money, competition, global trade, and health policy to the history of how societies have organized and developed, as well as the way we, as individuals and modern societies, make our own choices about how to generate and distribute resources more fairly and effectively for all—and how we decide what that actually means.
Some of the books I’ve worked on include Dani Rodrik’s Straight Talk on Trade, Katharina Pistor’s The Code of Capital, Uwe Reinhardt’s Priced Out, Anne Case and Angus Deaton’s Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism, Jan Eeckhout’s The Profit Paradox, Michael Keen and Joel Slemrod’s Rebellion, Rascals, and Revenue, Hal Weitzman’s What’s the Matter with Delaware?, Claudia Goldin’s Career and Family, Bruce Hansen’s Econometrics, and Alan Blinder’s A Monetary and Fiscal History of the United States, 1961-2021.
