Book Description

16 Jan 1997
Currency crises in Europe and Mexico during the 1990s provided stark reminders of the importance and the fragility of international financial markets. These experiences led some commentators to conclude that open international capital markets are incompatible with financial stability. But the pre-1914 gold standard is an obvious challenge to the notion that open capital markets are sources of instability. To deepen our understanding of how this system worked, this volume draws together recent research on the gold standard. Theoretical models are used to guide qualitative discussions of historical experience, while econometric methods are used to help the historical data speak clearly. The result is an overview of the gold standard, a survey of the relevant applied research in international macroeconomics, and a demonstration of how the past can help to inform the present.

Product Description

Review

"This volume honors its title by delivering two kinds of modern perspectives: recent advances in time-series econometrics, and recent policy concerns." Journal of Economics, Peter H. Lindert, University of California at Davis

Book Description

This book explores exchange rate instability during the 1990s in the light of the operation of the gold standard in the years prior to 1914. The result is an overview of the classical gold standard, a survey of the relevant applied research in international macroeconomics, and a demonstration of how the past can help to inform the present.

4.0 out of 5 stars From a non-economist 1 Jan 2003
By William F Harlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I used the book, particularly Eichengreen's chapter on modern perspectives, for a scholarly article I am writing. My field is speech communication rather than economics, and it seemed like a reasonably coherent book to me.
