Globalizing Capitalwas first published more than ten years ago and it remains an indispensable part of the economic literature today. This classic book, written by renowned economist Barry Eichengreen, emphasizes the importance of the international monetary system, and its importance for understanding the international economy. Brief and lucid, this book is intended not only for economists, but also for a general audience of historians, political scientists, professionals in government and business, and anyone with a broad interest in international relations. Here, Eichengreen demonstrates that the international monetary system can be understood and effectively governed only if it is seen as a historical phenomenon extending from the period of the gold standard to today's world of fluctuating prices. This updated edition continues to document the effect of floating rate exchanges and contains a new chapter on topics such as the Asian financial crisis, the advent of the euro, and the future of the dollar.Globalizing Capitalclearly shows how these and other recent developments can be put in their proper perspective once their political and historical contexts are analyzed.
