The gold standard illusion : France, the Bank of France, and the international gold standard, 1914-1939 by Kenneth Mouré( )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic historians have established a new orthodoxy attributing the onset and severity of the Great Depression to the flawed workings of the international gold standard. This interpretation returns French gold policy to centre stage in understanding the origins of the Depression, its rapid spread, its severity and its duration. The Gold Standard Illusion exploits new archival resources to test how well this gold standard interpretation of the Great Depression is sustained by historical records in France, the country most often criticized for hoarding gold and failure to play by the rules of the gold standard game. The study follows four lines of inquiry, providing a history of French gold policy in its national and international contexts from 1914 to 1939, an analysis of the evolution of the Bank of France during this period and the degree to which gold standard belief retarded the adoption of modern central banking practice, a re-examination of interwar central bank cooperation in the period and its role in the breakdown of the gold standard, and a study of how gold standard rhetoric fostered misperceptions of financial and monetary problems.; The French case was exceptional, marked by absolute and tenacious faith in the gold standard, by the import and accumulation of a vast hoard of gold desperately needed as reserves to prevent monetary contraction abroad, and by adamant claims for the need to return to gold after most countries had left the gold standard, which had become, in the words of John Maynard Keynes, 'a curse laid upon the economic life of the world'. The Gold Standard Illusion explains French gold standard belief and policy, the impact of French policy at home and abroad, and reassesses the gold standard interpretation of the Great Depression in the light of French experience

Managing the franc Poincaré : economic understanding and political constraint in French monetary policy, 1928-1936 by Kenneth Mouré( Book )

18 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defence of the franc Poincaré dominated French economic policy during the Depression. While most countries took their currencies off gold to permit a wider range of domestic policies to foster recovery, in France policy makers resolved to preserve the gold parity of the franc by balancing the budget and lowering domestic prices. Novelty and experimentation were rejected in the conviction that a durable recovery was possible only through a return to strict neoclassical orthodoxy. Managing the Franc Poincaré examines French monetary management from 1928 to 1936 in order to explain this stubborn determination to achieve recovery through deflation despite evidence of its failures abroad

L'épuration économique en France à la libération by Marc Bergère( )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Premier ouvrage, publié en France, sur la question de l'épuration économique, ce livre éclaire un angle longtemps mort de l'historiographie à la lumière de recherches récentes. En effet, entre les injustices dénoncées par les hagiographes du monde patronal - fixés sur quelques "victimes" emblématiques et expiatoires, telles que Renault ou Berliet, présentées comme autant d'arbres qui cachent la forêt - et l'idée communément admise de non-épuration économique, cette dernière apparaît encore trop souvent méconnue ou plutôt mal connue. Afin de faciliter une approche globale de l'épuration économique sous toutes ses formes (extra-légale et légale - judiciaire, professionnelle, financière -, mais aussi officieuse ou tacite) deux axes majeurs de réflexion ont été privilégiés. La première partie appréhende la définition, les enjeux, les contours, l'impact mais aussi les limites du phénomène au niveau national. Les deux suivantes présentent, la diversité des procédures et des acteurs engagés, mais aussi des objectifs poursuivis, selon des variables sectorielles et/ou spatiales (itinéraires patronaux, entreprises, institutions économiques, branches d'activité, territoires locaux ou régionaux, comparaisons internationales). Ce faisant, ce livre ouvre de nombreuses et souvent de nouvelles perspectives. Contrairement à une idée reçue, nombre de contributions insistent sur une épuration qui ne manque pas d'ampleur, au moins dans sa phase initiale, même si elle demeure ensuite plus inégale dans son application. Reste alors à comprendre ses facteurs d'inégalité dans le temps et dans l'espace. Au cœur d'une épuration de compromis, le livre dégage clairement plusieurs clés susceptibles de permettre un premier bilan du processus

Libération, délinquance et trafics en Seine-et-Oise : restrictions, consommation et marché noir des produits de l'U.S. Army (1944-1950) by Noëmie Fossé( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the Liberation, in circumstances of scarcity and restrictions, barter between civilians and American servicemen developed quite naturally. But the U.S. Army goods quickly became the object of illicit sales, mainly for cash. In Seine-et-Oise, during the first months of freedom, this economic phenomenon developed rapidly, facilitated by the installation of American troops and infrastructures as well as by the disillusionment that followed Liberation. In 1945, given the military, economic and social context, the expansion of black market traffic was sensational. Moreover, the gangsterization of relations between some civilians and servicemen and the inertia of Franco-American policing and French justice contributed significantly to this expansion. The professional and occasional traffickers stole, received stolen goods and dealt mainly in clothing, shoes, textiles, foodstuffs, gasoline or tires. With the redeployment of the American troops and the return of the free market, these convenience transactions lost their importance abruptly. The year 1946 marked the last surge of this illicit market. From 1947 to 1949, the traffickers saw the decline of black market traffic and the end of a golden era. Despite local misunderstandings and mutual antipathy, this traffic was phenomenally successful. The civilians and the American servicemen were aware that this opportunity would be brief. However, in 1950, in a very different economic context, the traffic in U.S. Army goods would reappear around the American military bases established as part of NATO
