The Bank of Canada : an illustrated history = La Banque du Canada : une histoire en images by Jill Vardy( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and French and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the Bank of Canada opened its doors on 11 March 1935, it has played a central role in the economic life of Canada and its citizens. Yet, the Bank's role in Canadian society has not always been well understood. ... Since its inception, the Bank has grown and developed as a public institution and as a workplace. Over the years, the Bank has been home to some colourful characters and fascinating stories. Many of these stories have been preserved in the Bank's Archives and in its Currency Museum. We hope that these images and anecdotes will help you learn more about Canada's central bank and its place in Canadian society"--Foreword, p. ii

Beads to bytes : Canada's national currency collection = Si l'argent m'était conté : la collection nationale de monnaies du Canada by Bank of Canada( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beads to Bytes: Canada's National Currency Collection--the fourth in a series of books about the Bank of Canada-- explores money and the role it has played, and continues to play, in society, through the lens of Canada's National Currency Collection. The Collection is an extraordinary repository of coins, bank notes, and related paraphernalia from around the world. . The book begins with a chapter on the definition of money, illustrated with examples from the Collection and highlighting money's various functions and the wide range of objects that have been used as money. It then focuses on the development of the Collection from its origins in the late 19th century to the present day. The mandate of the Currency Museum and its operations are also outlined. The next chapter presents important and unusual examples of coins and notes from classical to contemporary times. This is followed by a chapter devoted to money in society, with particular emphasis on inflation and monetary shortages. The impact of war on money is then explored, and this is followed by an examination of the recent introduction of new forms of monetary instruments that challenge the traditional concept of money. The concluding chapter explores numismatics and how a new collector can take part in this "hobby of kings"--Foreword, p. 4-5
Due diligence : a report on the Bank of Canada's handling of foreign gold during World War II by Duncan McDowall( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A document retrieved by World Jewish Congress researchers in Washington gave rise to the allegation that the Bank of Canada had been party, by means of paper transfer, to a complex gold transfer involving six tons of gold shuffled between Switzerland and Portugal in 1942. Later in the war, the document alleged, this same gold became part of a second questionable swap between Portugal and Sweden with Canada's central bank again playing the role of intermediary. The Canadian Jewish Congress echoed the opinion of the World Jewish Congress that the gold transfers involving the Bank looked like a classic money-laundering operation. The Canadian Jewish Congress therefore asked the Bank to undertake an investigation to ascertain its involvement in these transactions. The Bank immediately acquiesced, announcing not only that a thorough internal investigation would be undertaken but also that an outside historian would be asked to complete an independent analysis of the Bank's role in the wartime movement of gold. This is the report of that investigation. It reviews all documents related to gold transactions during the period from the founding of the Bank of Canada in 1935 through 1950, as well as documents from the Department of Finance & other departments and the European banks involved in the transactions. The investigation responds to public concern about possible Bank of Canada involvement in transactions related to looted Nazi gold during and after the Second World War

The Thiessen lectures by Gordon G Thiessen( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection presents lectures given by Gordon Thiessen during his time as Governor of the Bank of Canada. He describes the theoretical vision underlying Canada's monetary policy regime, discusses how it has worked in practice, and places both theory & practice in the context of the evolution of economic thought. The first lecture focusses on how the various types of fiscal market uncertainty influence the behaviour of economic actors and how uncertainty affects the transmission of monetary policy throughout the economy. The second lecture reflects on Canada's experience in using explicit targets aimed at low rates of inflation as the focus for conducting monetary policy. The third lecture reviews change in views on the role of monetary policy since the early 1960s work of the Royal Commission on Banking & Finance (Porter Commission). The final lecture is a selective overview of events critical to the evolution of monetary policy at the Bank of Canada from its founding in 1935 to 2000

A stochastic simulation framework for the government of Canada's debt strategy by David Jamieson Bolder( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Debt strategy is defined as the manner in which a government finances an excess of government expenditures over revenues and any maturing debt issued in previous periods. The author gives a thorough qualitative description of the complexities of debt strategy analysis and then demonstrates that it is, in fact, a problem in stochastic optimal control. Although this formal definition is conceptually useful, the author recommends the use of simulation to help characterize the set of strategies that a government can use to fund its borrowing requirements. He then describes in detail a stochastic simulation framework, building from previous work in Bolder (2001, 2002); this framework forms one important element in the debt strategy decision-making process employed by the Government of Canada. The primary objective in constructing this stochastic simulation framework is to learn about the nature of the risk and cost trade-offs associated with different financing strategies. To this end, the paper includes a detailed description of the model; a set of possible debt cost and risk measures, including one potentially useful conditional risk measure; illustrative results under normal stochastic conditions; an analysis of the sensitivity of the results to various key model parameters; a novel approach to stress testing; and a possible framework for selecting a financing strategy, given assumptions about government risk preferences
