This volume reflects the pioneering contribution of Nancy and Richard Ruggles to the development of national accounts. It provides a comprehensive overview of the evolution of national accounting systems over the last 50 years.

The book is divided into three parts: the evolution of national accounting, the United States National Accounts and the United Nations system of National Accounts. The Ruggles's look at the treatment of pensions, insurance and value added in national accounting and the relationship between national income accounting and economic policy. They then look at the conceptual basis and evolution of national accounting systems in the United States between 1947 and 1977 and the integrated economic accounts between 1947 and 1980. Finally, the book includes a review of the major issues in the United Nations system of national accounts, both in terms of measurement and in their applicability to economies in transition and developing countries.

Review:

The papers speak for themselves and demonstrate the magnitude of the contribution which Nancy and Richard Ruggles have made to the subject of economic accounting in the last half century. In contrast to many introverted and overly technical manuals and articles on national accounts, their papers are invariably clear, stimulating and readable. -- From the foreword by Peter Hill

They are clearly a classic team that has contributed enormously to national income account analysis over the years. The recent concern about measuring prices and productivity and about the correct indexing for Social Security has brought renewed attention to their work. Every serious economic library should have the volumes. -- Martin Feldstein, National Bureau of Economic Research, US
