"Fischer Black is a household name on Wall Street. Had he lived, Fischer would have shared (with Robert Merton and Myron Scholes) the Nobel Prize for their work in financial economics. But Fischer also made extraordinarily deep contributions to macroeconomics. This collection of Fischer's key macro analyses is a feast for the intellect, but one that is very easily digested thanks to Perry Mehrling's marvelous introduction, historical perspective, and unique ability to connect Fischer's many dots. The book is of special relevance to anyone hoping to understand today's financial crisis and its macroeconomic and policy ramifications. I recommend it most highly" (Laurence Kotlikoff).
