Abstract

Exchange rates are vital to the functioning of an economy, so what determines the currency policies that governments choose to pursue? In Currency Politics: The Political Economy of Exchange Rate Policy, Jeffry A. Frieden draws upon a range of historical examples and case studies from Europe, North America and Latin America to offer an analysis of the politics of exchange rate policy. While often a challenging read, this book is worth the effort for those looking to understand how national politics shape currency policy and the possible future of international currency regimes, writes Jenny McArthur.
