Industry Reviews

"Peter Kenen has enlightened the economics profession with 40 years' worth of contributions to international monetary theory, international trade theory and public policy debates. Benjamin Cohen's International Trade and Finance: New Frontiers for Research is the profession's way of providing a well-deserved and well-crafted thank you. A 'must read' volume for all interested in international economics." Ronald W. Jones, University of Rochester "Peter Kenen has been one of the most prolific and influential international economists of his generation. This festschrift, consisting of splendid essays by many of his students, reminds us that Kenen has also been a great teacher who has produced many of today's best international economists. No other scholar can want more than Kenen has achieved." Jagdish Bhagwati, Columbia University "These high quality papers are fitting tributes to an innovative and influential economist. I particularly enjoyed Paul Krugman's masterly review of Peter Kenen's contributions to theory and policy." W. Max Corden, Johns Hopkins University
