  6. MONETARY REGIME TRANSFORMATIONS

    MONETARY REGIME TRANSFORMATIONS

    Edited by Barry Eichengreen
    This important volume collects, for the first time, key essays and papers on monetary regime transformations by economists, historians and political scientists alike. The inflation of the 1970s prompted considerable research by economists on monetary regimes and their transformation. However, empiricists who take seriously the notion that monetary regimes matter must necessarily examine long spans of data and, by implication, analyse historical experience. Empirical research on monetary regimes necessarily is historical research. Learn More

  12. MAJOR INFLATIONS IN HISTORY

    MAJOR INFLATIONS IN HISTORY

    Edited by Forrest H. Capie
    This title is concerned with periods of very rapid inflation in the period before 1950 and shifts the emphasis from hyperinflation as commonly defined to a wider range of experience. It examines the source and origins of these inflationary episodes, how they started and what measures were used to bring them to an end. The experience of the last twenty years, when the entire world has been on fiat money and inflation has burgeoned, sometimes in excess of 100 per cent per annum, has led economists to reflect on historical examples of this phenomena.
