MONETARY REGIME TRANSFORMATIONS

9781852784294 Edward Elgar Publishing
Edited by Barry Eichengreen, George C. Pardee and Helen N. Pardee Professor of Economics and Political Science, University of California, Berkeley, US
Publication Date: March 1992 ISBN: 978 1 85278 429 4 Extent: 608 pp
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.

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.

The landmark volume – presenting as it does a careful selection of the most important historical essays – will be essential to an understanding of monetary regime transformations.
