A history of the Federal Reserve by Allan H Meltzer ( Book )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This first volume of Allan H. Meltzer's history of the Federal Reserve System covers the period from the Federal Reserve's founding in 1913 through the Treasury-Federal Reserve Accord of 1951. To understand why the Federal Reserve acted as it did at key points in its history, Meltzer draws on meeting minutes, correspondence, and other internal documents (many made public only during the 1970s) to trace the reasoning behind its policy decisions. He explains why the Federal Reserve remained passive throughout most of the economic decline that led to the Great Depression, and how the Board's actions helped to produce the deep recession of 1937 and 1938. He also highlights the impact that individuals had on the institution, such as Benjamin Strong, governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in the 1920s, who played a large role in the adoption of a more active monetary policy by the Federal Reserve. From attempts to build a new international financial system at the London Monetary and Economic Conference of 1933 to the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944 that established the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, Meltzer also examines the influence the Federal Reserve has had on international affairs

Why capitalism? by Allan H Meltzer ( Book )
13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A review of the headlines of the past decade seems to show that disasters are often part of capitalist systems: the high-tech bubble, the Enron fraud, the Madoff Ponzi scheme, the great housing bubble, massive lay-offs, and a widening income gap. Disenchantment with the market economy has reached the point that many even question capitalism itself. Allan H. Meltzer disagrees, passionately and persuasively. Drawing on deep expertise as a financial historian and authority on economic theory, he provides a resounding answer to the question, "why capitalism?" Only capitalism, he writes
Money and the economy issues in monetary analysis by Karl Brunner ( Book )
17 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume, by two of the profession's most eminent monetarist economists, offers a unique perspective on a key issue of monetary economics: the effect of money on output. Karl Brunner and Allan Meltzer address the theoretical aspects of this issue with the purpose of understanding their policy implications. The opening lecture offers an historical overview of the relationship between money and output. The second lecture presents their well-known model of a monetary economy. The real sector, and in particular the government budget constraint, is examined in the third lecture. The Leitmotif of the lectures, uncertainty and the costs of acquiring information is the theme of the final lecture. Here they argue that uncertainty can be most effectively reduced by relying on rules rather than discretion, and by basing rules on observation rather than on forecasts
