"A brilliant technical treatise that includes both new results and original synthesis. . . . The Conquest of American Inflation may help to fashion a new paradigm in macroeconomic analysis."--Ben Bernanke, Princeton University"A very deep and very subtle piece of scholarship.... Sargent is most impressive in his ability to bring theoretical arguments to bear on the problem of distinguishing empirically between the two histories of postwar inflation."--Thomas F. Cooley, University of Rochester""The Conquest of American Inflation "is a fascinating document, marshalling sophisticated economic theory and econometrics to the task of explaining the past 50 years of U.S. monetary policy and its interaction with macroconomic activity. It will surely be widely cited and widely discussed."--Robert King, University of Virginia"A fascinating study of a real-world phenomenon that uses ideas from recent theoretical work on bounded rationality. Brilliant and pathbreaking."--David Kreps, Stanford University

This book illustrates Sargent's great curiosity and honesty ... A beautifully crafted, deep, and ... very accessible work... It deserves to be one of the century's most influential books on macroeconomics."--Peter Sinclair, Times Literary Supplement "A path-breaking contribution.
