Dear comrades,

	I forgot to say in my previous intervention on this stream 
that there is an UK url which may be useful on this stuff, and more 
generally on academic textbooks (if you go back one step):


	there, btw, you find the reference to Ernesto's book. it's 
funny because in the site they have put the name of the translator as 
an author, together with Screpanti and Zamagni.

	two questions to thosa who are reading:

(i) do you know some other good site of this kind (e.g., on the USA, 
or France)?

(ii) do you have similar advice on Monetary Economics? some good 
textbook in English (if you answer, please rename the 'subject' as 
"textbook on Monetary Economics").

I liked very much the textbooks of Rousseas and Harris, but they are 
now more than 15-20 years old. so I would be happy to find something 
of that kind. a fairly detailed and didactical overview.

In Italy, today, monetary economis is a field which is thought not 
only as mainly monetary macroeconomics, but also as covering what is 
special about the banks etc. so I would like to have advice on 
something good and up to date.
