Editorial Reviews


'... recommended reading for all monetary economists and practitioners alike.' International Affairs

'Overall this is an excellent contribution to our understanding of the functioning of modern financial markets. It will become essential reading for students, researchers, practitioners and policy-makers with an interest in the behaviour of monetary and financial systems.' Journal of International Development

Book Description

Argues for a theory of monetary economics which emphasises the importance of the demand and supply of loanable funds and the role of credit. Expanding upon the literature of new institutional economics, the first part of the book stresses the significance of imperfections in information, bankruptcy and banks. The second part examines the policy implications of the new paradigm and demonstrates its relevance to our understanding of two recent historical episodes--the East Asian financial crisis and the 1991 US recession and subsequent recovery and boom.

Format: Paperback
First off I am not a not an economist. Bought this book because I am very interested in how current monetary system works and what the future holds. This book fortunatly covers both topics; in great detail. The book goes over the advantages and disadvantages of the current way, how banks lend to grow the economy. It then goes over how that is being transformed and what we can expect in the future. The book is not as dry as most hard-core academic books, it is readible. My goal is to have a broad understanding of how the financial system of our world works, and this book did a great job of helping me understand. It does have a few advanced mathematical equations, I do not know how to solve them but they were very well at least I do understand what the equations are for. Great book it might be worth it to look for more books in the Raffaele Mattioli Lecture series.
