Currencies, Capital, Central Bank Balances — 5th In A Series

by John B. Taylorvia Economics One
Saturday, April 20, 2019

The most recent book, Currencies, Capital, and Central Bank Balances, in a series on monetary policy has just been published. It is the 5th in a series of volumes emerging from conferences on monetary policy held each spring at the Hoover Institution. The series started during the Federal Reserve Centennial. The conferences at that time did not, in our view, portray a full range of views about policy. So we decided to start a conference series with a bigger range of views, and it has been popular. Next May 3 we will have the 6th conference and a book will likely emerge.
