The Bullionist Controversy: A Time-Series Analysis

Author

  • Officer, Lawrence H

Abstract

The bullionist and antibullionist models of the Bank Restriction Period (1797-1821) represent early monetarist/nonmonetarist approaches to macroeconomics under a paper standard and floating exchange rate. In contrast to the existing literature, the competing models (plus a modern bullionist alternative) are presented as chains of causation linking individual hypotheses rather than simply as sets of individual hypotheses. For the first time, multivariate time-series analysis is used to test the models, and data are much improved over previous studies. Evidence is preponderantly, though not exclusively, in favor of the antibullionist position. Copyright @ 2000 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. All rights reserved.
