Hardbound. In recent years, there has been renewed interest in index number and aggregation theory, since the two previously divergent fields have been successfully unified.

William Barnett, the coeditor of this volume, introduced modern economic index number theory into monetary economics. His merger of economic index number theory, with monetary theory was based upon the use of Diewert's approach to producing "superlative" nonparametric approximationsto the theoretically exact aggregator functions. This book comprises a focussed and unified collection of Barnett's most important publications in this area. The papers in the book have been organized
