Fifty Years of Economic Measurement: The Jubilee of the Conference on Research in Income and Wealth.

Fifty Years of Economic Measurement: The Jubilee of the Conference on Research in Income and Wealth (CRIW), edited by Ernst R. Berndt and Jack E. Triplett, is available from the University of Chicago Press for $65. This volume commemorates the 50th anniversary of the NBER's CRIW, which brings together government and academic economists in an attempt to improve economic measurement.

Among the topics discussed in the book are the measurement of: prices and output; major productive inputs; and saving. It also describes the use of economic data in policy analysis and regulation. This volume is likely to be a valuable resource for scholars and graduate students.

Berndt is a research associate in the NBER's Program in Productivity and a professor at MIT's Sloan School of Management. Triplett is chief economist at the Bureau of Economic Analysis (U.S. Department of Commerce).
