In spite of the attention paid exchange rates in recent economic debates on developing countries, relatively few studies have systematically analyzed in detail the various ramifications of exchange rate policy in these countries. In this new volume from the National Bureau of Economic Research, leading economists use rigorous models to tackle various exchange rate issues, while also illuminating policy implications that emerge from their analyses. The volume, divided into four main sections, addresses: the role of exchange rates in stabilization programs and the adjustment process; the importa

Lords of finance by Liaquat Ahamed( )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is commonly believed that the Great Depression that began in 1929 resulted from a confluence of events beyond any one person's or government's control. In fact, as Liaquat Ahamed reveals, it was the decisions made by a small number of central bankers that were the primary cause of the economic meltdown, the effects of which set the stage for World War II and reverberated for decades. In Lords of Finance, we meet the neurotic and enigmatic Montagu Norman of the Bank of England, the xenophobic and suspicious mile Moreau of the Banque de France, the arrogant yet brilliant Hjalmar Schacht of the Reichsbank, and Benjamin Strong of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, whose faade of energy and drive masked a deeply wounded and overburdened man. After the First World War, these central bankers attempted to reconstruct the world of international finance. Despite their differences, they were united by a common fear-that the greatest threat to capitalism was inflation-and by a common vision that the solution was to turn back the clock and return the world to the gold standard. For a brief period in the mid-1920s, they appeared to have succeeded. The world's currencies were stabilized, and capital began flowing freely across the globe. But beneath the veneer of boomtown prosperity, cracks started to appear in the financial system. The gold standard that all had believed would provide an umbrella of stability proved to be a straitjacket, and the world economy began that terrible downward spiral known as the Great Depression. As yet another period of economic turmoil makes headlines today, the Great Depression and the year 1929 remain the benchmark for true financial mayhem. Offering a new understanding of the global nature of financial crises, Lords of Finance is a potent reminder of the enormous impact that the decisions of central bankers can have, of their fallibility, and of the terrible human consequences that can result when they are wrong
Los se©łores de las finanzas : Los cuatro hombres que arruinaron el mundo by Liaquat Ahamed( )

1 edition published in 2012 in Spanish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los se©łores de las finanzas es una obra magistral que nos sumerge en una ©♭poca y unos personajes que nos dan una perspectiva ©ðnica de la situaci©đn econ©đmica actual. En el a©ło 29 se produjo una de las peores crisis financieras de la historia. Mucho se ha escrito sobre las consecuencias que tuvo pero poco sobre sus causas. Durante a©łos se ha considerado que ©♭sta se produjo por una confluencia de factores no regidos por poder pol©Ưtico alguno. Pero seg©ðn el autor, fueron las decisiones tomadas por un reducido grupo de gobernadores de Bancos Centrales las que condujeron a esa grave crisis. El libro se centra en las historias del enigm©Łtico Montagu Norman del Banco de Inglaterra, la xen©đfoba ©⁹mile Moreau de la Banque de France, la arrogante Hjalmar Schacht del Reichsbank y Benjamin Strong gobernador de la Reserva Federal, en apariencia hombre en©♭rgico que escond©Ưa una alma herida. Cuatro personas con la voluntad de reconstruir el sistema financiero internacional y con un miedo com©ðn: la inflaci©đn. Si durante un breve periodo su soluci©đn del patr©đn oro pareci©đ acertada, las consecuencias que aquello tuvo fueron desastrosas. La ca©Ưda en espiral de la econom©Ưa llev©đ al mundo a uno de los periodos m©Łs oscuros de su historia, La Gran Depresi©đn
