The Structure of the Legal Profession in England and Wales

  • Bowles, Roger
Registered author(s):

    The paper first addresses the issue of the conduct of monetary and exchange-rate policy in Europe in the wake of the foreign-exchange crises of 1992 and 1993. The causes of these crises are investigated and the case for seeking a resurrection of a "fairly fixed" exchange-rate system in Europe is appraised. It appears that stability in such a system could be assured in one of three ways via capital controls, via increased flexibility, or via increased symmetry in policy. A quick move to complete monetary union is a further possibility. The second part of the paper addresses the monetary policy problems facing the U.K.; a key issue identified here is the need for a stable and consistent policy. To provide a framework conducive to satisfying this need, it appears that constitutional change may be called for. The paper appraises the merits of "independence" in central banking.
