Monetary Regimes and Policy on a Global Scale: The Oeuvre of Michael D. Bordo

  • Rockoff, Hugh
  • White, Eugene N.

Michael D. Bordo has helped to define the modern field of monetary history, drawing from it important policy lessons for current practitioners. For his seventieth year, we survey his contributions to our understanding of the Great Depression, money and the economy in historical perspective, exchange rate regimes including the gold standard, Bretton Woods, and the European Monetary Union, globalization, financial crises, the Canadian monetary experience, and historical guidance for monetary policy.
