We develop a new method to measure economic policy uncertainty and test its dynamic relationship with output, investment, and employment. We find that, sinceeconomic policy uncertainty in the United States has been at a level approximately two times its long run average.

This new book examines the way these constructs govern the production of wealth through 'uncertain' speculation and 'calculable' investment formulae. During high policy uncertainty periods, we document a positive association between debt maturity and credit quality in which firms with higher credit quality tend to lengthen their debt maturity.
Thus, when policy uncertainty is high, the costs of the liquidity/refinancing risk outweigh the costs of underinvestment and mispricing of long-term debt. The themes 'trust', 'risk ' and 'uncertainty' seem especially pertinent in the context of the post-9/11 world. This book brings together a range of new research with a focus on the 'risk society' debate and on the themes of 'trust', 'uncertainty' and 'ambivalence'.
