Globalizing Capital : a history of the international monetary system by Barry J Eichengreen ( Book )
25 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 1,189 libraries worldwide
Barry Eichengreen presents a brief, lucid book that tells the story of the international financial system over the past 150 years. Globalizing Capital is intended not only for economists but also for a general audience of historians, political scientists, professionals in government and business, and anyone with a broad interest in international economic and political relations. Eichengreen's work demonstrates that insights into the international monetary system and effective principles for governing it can result only if it is seen as a historical phenomenon extending from the gold standard period to the interwar period, then to Bretton Woods, and finally to the post-1973 period of fluctuating currencies.

International monetary arrangements for the 21st century by Barry J Eichengreen ( Book )
9 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 1,016 libraries worldwide
Recent events have reignited the debate over the future of the international monetary system. This book, part of the Integrating National Economies series, examines international monetary options for the twenty-first century. Barry Eichengreen argues that it will not be possible for governments to prevent exchange rate movements from exceeding prespecified limits. Changes in technology, market structure, and politics will force countries that have traditionally pegged their exchange rates to choose between floating rates and monetary unification. Eichengreen describes the various international monetary arrangements with which policymakers have experimented in the past. He introduces the requirements that an international monetary system must satisfy and illustrates how these requirements have been met over time. He analyzes which preconditions for the smooth operation of international monetary systems in the past will be impossible to achieve in the next century and creates a list of feasible options for future policymakers.
European monetary unification : theory, practice, and analysis by Barry J Eichengreen ( Book )
10 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 820 libraries worldwide
"At the beginning of 1998 the member states of the European Union will decide whether or not to go ahead with their monetary union and determine which countries qualify as members. There is a high likelihood that Stage III of the Maastricht process - monetary union itself - will commence on January 1, 1999, and that a single currency, to be known as the Euro, will replace the national currencies of the founding member states at the beginning of 2002."--BOOK JACKET. "Whether EMU is feasible and desirable is contested among economists and politicians alike. This book sheds light on the controversy by considering seven major aspects: (1) what the theory of optimum currency areas reveals about the EMU project, (2) how Europe compares with existing monetary unions such as the United States, (3) the crisis in the European monetary system and the feasibility of stabilizing exchange rates in the absence of monetary unification, (4) fiscal policy and EMU, (5) labor markets and EMU, (6) the connections between monetary and political union, and (7) EMU and the rest of the world."--BOOK JACKET. "The author views EMU as neither a grand achievement nor a terrible blunder, but as a process. He argues that the effects of monetary unification will depend on how it is structured and governed, and how quickly Europe's markets adapt to a single currency."--BOOK JACKET.
Golden fetters : the gold standard and the Great Depression, 1919-1939 by Barry J Eichengreen ( Book )
16 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 803 libraries worldwide
Eichengreen argues that the gold standard of the 1920s set the stage for the Depression of the 1930s by heightening the fragility of the international financial system, and was the mechanism that transmitted the destabilizing impulse from the USA to the rest of the world.
Global imbalances and the lessons of Bretton Woods by Barry J Eichengreen ( Book )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 735 libraries worldwide
"An influential school of thought views the current international monetary and financial system as Bretton Woods reborn. Today, like 40 years ago, the international system is composed of a core, which has the exorbitant privilege of issuing the currency used as international reserves, and a periphery, which is committed to export-led growth based on the maintenance of an undervalued exchange rate. In the 1960s, the core was the United States and the periphery was Europe and Japan. Now, with the spread of globalization, there is a new periphery, Asia, but the same old core, the United States, with the same tendency to live beyond its means. This view suggests that the current pattern of international settlements can be maintained indefinitely. The United States can continue running current account deficits because the emerging markets of Asia and Latin America are happy to accumulate dollars. There is no reason why the dollar must fall, since there is no need for balance of payments adjustment; in particular, the Asian countries will resist the appreciation of their currencies against the greenback. I argue that this image of a new Bretton Woods System confuses the incentives that confronted individual countries under Bretton Woods with the incentives that confronted groups of countries. It imagines the existence of a cohesive bloc of countries called the periphery ready and able to act in their collective interest. I argue, to the contrary, that the countries of Asia constituting the new periphery are unlikely to be able to subordinate their individual interest to the collective interest. This image of the current system as Bretton Woods reborn also overlooks how the world has changed since the 1960s. This alternative reading of history and current circumstances suggests that even if there exists today something vaguely resembling the Bretton Woods System, it is not long for this world"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site.

Exorbitant privilege : the rise and fall of the dollar and the future of the international monetary system by Barry J Eichengreen ( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 479 libraries worldwide
In Exorbitant Privilege, economic historian, Barry Eichengreen, traces the rise of the dollar to international prominence over the course of the 20th century. He shows that the greenback dominated internationally in the second half of the century for the same reasons and in the same way that the United States dominated the global economy. But now, America no longer towers over the global economy. It follows, Eichengreen argues, that the dollar will not be a dominant. Challenging the presumption that there is room for only one true global currency, either the dollar or something else, Eichengreen shows that several currencies have shared this international role over long periods.--[book jacket]

Other people's money : debt denomination and financial instability in emerging market economies ( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 446 libraries worldwide
"Recent crises in emerging markets have been heavily driven by balance-sheet or net-worth effects. Episodes in countries as far-flung as Indonesia and Argentina have shown that exchange rate adjustments that would normally help to restore balance can be destabilizing, even catastrophic, for countries whose debts are denominated in foreign currencies. Many economists instinctually assume that developing countries allow their foreign debts to be denominated in dollars, yen, or euros because they simply don't know better." "Presenting evidence that even emerging markets with strong policies and institutions experience this problem, Other People's Money recognizes that the situation must be attributed to more than ignorance. Instead, the contributors suggest that the problem is linked to the operation of international financial markets that prevent countries from borrowing in their own currencies. A comprehensive analysis of the sources of this problem and its consequences, Other People's Money takes the study one step further by proposing a solution that would involve having the World Bank and regional development banks themselves borrow and lend in emerging market currencies." "Painstakingly researched, this volume combines case studies, mathematical analysis, historical analysis, and public policy to provide students, economists, policymakers, and others with a state-of-the-art overview of the debt denomination problem and its potential solutions."--BOOK JACKET.
Sterling in decline : the devaluations of 1931, 1949, and 1967 by Alec Cairncross ( Book )
9 editions published between 1983 and 2003 in English and held by 404 libraries worldwide
"Sterling in Decline takes the devaluations of 1931, 1949 and 1967 as a metaphor for Britain's changing position in the world economy. It traces the decline of the pound sterling from the world's pre-eminent currency, together with the dollar's rise to prominence. It also challenges the conventional wisdom regarding the implications of events in foreign exchange markets, and of British foreign economic policy generally, for the macroeconomic performance of the British economy." "This second edition features a new introduction that frames the analysis in the light of subsequent contributions and brings the story up-to-date. It draws out the implications of sterling's troubled 20th century history for the country's decision of whether or not to adopt the euro."--Jacket.
