Has the economic and financial crisis changed the way we conduct monetary policy? Is quantitative easing consistent with the endogeneity of money? These are but two of the questions this new book explores. The various contributors offer interesting and new perspectives on the conduct of monetary policy during the crisis, and provide sharp criticism of central bank policies in the US and Europe.

Monetary Policy and Central Banking is a must read for all those interested in the critical analysis of monetary policy. Students and scholars of post-Keynesian economics, banking, and financial crises will find this book of particular relevance.
