  3. Financial Markets and the Real Economy

    Financial Markets and the Real Economy

    Edited by John H. Cochrane
    This insightful collection examines the intersection between macroeconomics and finance.

  4. The New Monetary Policy

    The New Monetary Policy

    Edited by Phillip Arestis, Michelle Baddeley, John S.L. McCombie
    Beginning with an assessment of new thinking in macroeconomics and monetary theory, this book suggests that many countries have adopted the New Consensus Monetary Policy since the early 1990s in an attempt to reduce inflation to low levels. It goes on to illustrate that the explicit control of the money supply, which was fashionable in the 1970s and 1980s in the UK, US, Europe and elsewhere, was abandoned in favour of monetary rules that focus on interest rate manipulation by the central bank. The objective of these rules is to achieve specific, or a range of, inflation targets. Learn More

  12. Central Banking in the Modern World

    Central Banking in the Modern World

    Edited by Marc Lavoie, Mario Seccareccia
    According to the New Consensus in monetary economics, monetarism is dead and central bankers target low inflation rates by acting upon short-term real rates of interest. Yet, this synthesis hinges on variants of the long-run vertical Phillips curve originally proposed by Milton Friedman, the father of old-line monetarism. Contributors to this volume question this New Consensus. While they agree that the money supply should be conceived as endogenous, they carefully examine the procedures pursued by central banks, the monetary policy transmission mechanisms suggested by central bankers themselves, and the assumptions imbedded in the New Consensus. They propose alternative analyses that clearly demonstrate the limits of modern central banking and point to the possible instability of monetary economies. Learn More

    International Monetary Relations in the New Global Economy

    Edited by Benjamin J. Cohen
    The studies included in these two volumes have been selected to highlight key recent contributions to scholarship on the political economy of international monetary relations.

The papers collected here have significantly advanced theoretical and analytical understanding of the causes and, even more importantly, the political and economic consequences of financial liberalization. Among the issues addressed are the impact of growing capital mobility on domestic policy, the choice of exchange-rate regimes and monetary institutions, governance of international capital, policy cooperation and monetary integration. These volumes will be of particular interest to specialists in international political economy. Learn More

  17. Monetary Strategies for Joining the Euro

    Monetary Strategies for Joining the Euro

    Edited by György Szapáry, Jürgen von Hagen
    In this book, well-known economists and policymakers look at the next step in the integration process for accession countries: accession to European Monetary Union (EMU). They debate which monetary and exchange rate strategies are optimal during the run-up to EMU, and consider the conflict that may arise in trying to meet both the exchange rate stability and the Maastricht inflation criteria. The impossible trinity between monetary independence, exchange rate stability and free capital flows is also addressed, as is the question of the effects of structural changes on the real exchange rate. Estimates of the ‘Balassa–Samuelson effect’ on five of the new member states, and the experiences of Portugal and Greece in their run-up to EMU are discussed, and lessons for the economic policies of the new EU member states are illustrated.

    Monetary Theory

    Alan A. Rabin

Trying to remedy this imbalance, the author concentrates on what he judges to be the essentials of monetary theory. Learn More
