More Information
Now in its third incarnation, this widely acclaimed and popular text has again been fully updated and revised by the author. There is a bewildering array of models to explain the volatility of exchange rates since the collapse of the Bretton Woods system in the early 1970s. It is therefore invaluable that Hans Visser is able to bring method to this ‘model madness’ by grouping the various theories according to the time period for which their explanation is relevant, and further subdividing them according to their assumptions as to price flexibility and international financial asset substitutability.

A Guide to International Monetary Economics is a systematic overview of exchange rate theories, an analysis of exchange rate systems and a discussion of exchange rate policies including discussion of the obstacles that may confront policymakers while running any particular system. This third edition emphasises recent developments such as the creation and expansion of the euro and the radical solution of dollarisation. The book is a concise treatment of this complex field and does not encumber the reader with a surfeit of potentially distracting institutional details.

As with previous editions, the emphasis is on the economic reasoning behind the formulae while introducing students to the mathematics that will enable them to pursue further reading. This book is aimed at postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students in general and international economics and international finance, as well as business management scholars and researchers specialising in finance. Professional economists wishing to bring up to date their knowledge of the subject will also find much within this book of value to them.
Critical Acclaim
‘A Guide to International Monetary Economics is a “must-have” for college library and economics reference shelves, as well as intermediate to advanced economic students and professional economists seeking to stay abreast of the latest changes in common understanding of economic theory.’
– Midwest Book Review

Acclaim for the second edition:

‘This is a timely and welcome second edition of an established text, successfully blending theory and application. The pace of change in international monetary economics is fast, and Hans Visser’s excellent book, which includes new material on highly topical issues such as capital flows, the East Asian crisis, the Tobin tax debate and currency boards, will be very useful indeed both in and out of the classroom. Highly recommended.’
– Mark P. Taylor, University of Warwick, UK
