Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1996. Eichengreen’s book tells the story in four meaty but easily digested chapters (plus an introduction and conclusion, both very brief), covering the gold standard, the interwar period, the Bretton Woods System, and post-Bretton Woods developments. Nor is it altogether obvious that the international gold standard promoted internal macroeconomic instability. Although the standard proved deflationary until the mid-1890s, this deflation does not seem to have stifled economic growth.

This book shows the strong influence that the monetary system has had on the world economy at various points in history. The most dramatic example began in 1929, as nations’ rigid reliance on the gold standard facilitated the spread of the Great Depression from country to country.
