Synopsis: This book contains a collection of Michael D. Bordo's essays, written singly and with colleagues, on the classical gold standard and related regimes based directly or indirectly on gold convertibility. The gold standard (and its variants) was the basis for both international and domestic monetary arrangements from the third quarter of the nineteenth century until 1971 when President Nixon closed the US gold window, effectively ending the Bretton Woods International Monetary System. Although the gold standard and its variants are now history, it still has great appeal for policymakers and scholars. Several desirable features of the gold standard have resources for the ongoing issue of international monetary reform. They include its record as a stable nominal anchor; its automaticity; and its role as a credible commitment mechanism. The essays in this collection are organized around several themes: gold and the international monetary system; the commodity theory of money; the gold standard as a rule; variants of the gold standard including the interwar gold standard and the Bretton Woods International Monetary System.

Book Description: "Michael Bordo is to be commended for having given us a volume of collected essays (some written jointly with others) that admirably blend theory and history in five parts treating doctrinal thought, gold as a commodity standard, the gold standard as a contingent rule, historical cases, and the Bretton Woods system...this is a provocative and stimulating collection of essays that deserve the careful consideration of scholars and policymakers alike. It opens the door to many avenues of fruitful research that will almost certainly better our understanding of regime change and its significance for economic performance." Journal of Economics
