This book is a collection of articles by eminent economic historians from five European colonial powers and from six New World countries. The articles focus on the legacy of the Old World fiscal institutions (taxes and expenditures) and monetary institutions (currency and banking) for the New World from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century. Did the success or failure of the New World's institutions in the independent countries reflect the foundations and the flaws of the former colonial masters or adaptation to the new environment?

Review:

"I found this book to be useful as a broad guide to the fiscal and monetary institutions of a large number of nations over a considerable time period." Economic History

"...important and timely collection... each contributor provides a wealth of statistical data and cogent, generally well-written analyses informed by sound economic theories. Furthermore, the editors and commentators have done an excellent job of selecting, summarizing, and evaluating the case studies... this important work should be read by business, economic, and legal historians, and macroeconomists, political economists, and policymakers, both public and corporate." Robin E. Wright, International Journal of Business History

"Business historians should make extensive use of the volume..." Autumn 2002

"This book is worth reading for its historical value, especially for those interested in teh development of particular countries." - Review of Political Economy Oren M. Levin-Waldman, Metropolitan College of New York

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book contains a collection of essays comparing the evolution of the fiscal and monetary regimes of the Old World colonial powers - England, France, Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands - from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries with the experiences of several of their former colonies in the New World of the Americas: the United States, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil and Argentina. The objective is to see how such fiscal and monetary institutions were modified or replaced by new ones. The case studies in the collection consider the experience of the colonies after they became independent countries; they examine the factors that allowed efficient fiscal institutions to develop in some countries, while in others such development turned out to be unsuccessful; and they consider why some governments were able to live within their means and provide public goods, while for others expenditures frequently exceeded revenue, often leading to fiscal crises.
