From the Publisher
This volume is the result of one in a series of ten seminars designed to reexamine established precepts and practices of economic and political development. Each reflects the series theme -- Including the Excluded: Extending the Benefits of Development. Throughout the series, contemporary Third World experience is explicitly joined with the historical experience of the United States and other countries during comparable periods of development. The lively, frequently pointed, always instructive give-and-take among seminar participants is included in non-summarized form in each of the resulting products, published by ICS Press on behalf of their producer, Sequoia Institute, as Sequoia Seminar Publications. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

He is perhaps the most well known advocate of currency boards (and critic of central banks) throughout the developing world, including the installation, during the 1990s, of currency boards in Argentina, Lithuania, Estonia and Bulgaria. Professor Hanke has served as chief economist for Friedberg Commodity Management, Inc. (Toronto), and as adviser to the president at Deloitte Ross Tohmatsu International/Eastern Europe (Brussels). His voluminous writing includes Privatization & Development (ICS Press, 1987) and (with Kurt Schuler) Currency Boards for Developing Countries (ICS Press, 1994). Sir Alan A. Walters was the personal economic adviser to former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. He has served as a director of Putnam, Hayes, and Bartlett, Inc., and as vice-chairman and director, AIG Trading Corporation. His many appointments have included those of senior fellow at American Enterprise Institute and professor of economics at Johns Hopkins University. Professor Walters' voluminous publications include Money in Boom and Slump; An Introduction to Econometrics; Noise and Prices; Microeconomic Theory (with R. Layard), Britain's Economic Renaissance; and Sterling in Danger.
