      Description: Widely considered the crowning achievement in the history of international monetary relations, the classical gold standard (1880- 1914) has long been treated like a holy relic. Its veneration, however, has done more to obscure than to reveal the actual nature of the era's monetary system. In The Anatomy of an International Monetary Regime, Giulio M. Gallarotti addresses the nature of the classical gold standard in its international context, offering the first comprehensive and systematic treatment of thesubject. Three fundamental questions are essential to the discussion: How did the regime originate? How did it work? Why did it persist? Gallarotti uses an interdisciplinary approach that draws upon politics, economics, and ideology to explain the answers. He challenges traditional assumptions about the period, arguing that cooperation among nations or central banks was not a principal factor in either the origin or stability of the system, and that neither the British

      Description: This book, the first full account of Japan's financial history and the Japanese gold standard in the pivotal years before World War II, provides a new perspective on the global political dynamics of the era by placing Japan, rather than Europe, at the center of the story. Focusing on the fall of liberalism in Japan in late 1931 and the global politics of money that were at the center of the crisis, Mark Metzler asks why successive Japanese governments from 1920 to 1931 carried out policies that deliberately induced deflation and depression. His search for answers stretches from Edo to London to the ragged borderlands of the Japanese empire and from the eighteenth century to the 1950s, integrating political and monetary analysis to shed light on the complex dynamics of money, empire, and global hegemony. His detailed and broad ranging account illuminates a range of issues including Japan's involvement in the economic dynamics that shook interwar Europe, the character of
      Download Economics of a Pure Gold Standard - Mark Skousen
      Description: In the midst of continued monetary turmoil and the search for an ideal monetary system, the debate over gold and its role in the global economy rages. Professor Mark Skousen, financial economist, university professor, and author, offers a full discussion over the pro's and con's of returning to the international gold standard in this third edition of his classic work on gold. How would a pure gold standard work? What are the benefits and costs of returning to gold? What do the great economists (Adam Smith, John Maynard Keynes, Paul Samuelson, Ludwig von Mises, Milton Friedman, Murray Rothbard) say about the gold standard? From the 1988 second edition: "There is an increasing uneasiness about the international fiat 'dollar' standard and its apparent inability to provide stability in the foreign exchange markets, even in times of low inflation. Without some kind of independent monetary yardstick, the world's currencies seem to be at sea without a rudder." From the 1996...
