Overview

The monetary side of domestic and international economic policy has generated increasingly intense debate and concern within and among the major industrial countries over the last several years. Recently, the Bank of Japan's

Collected in this volume are their original contributions: eight essays that cover monetary policy in an uncertain world, domestic and international aspects of monetary policy, and policies to overcome stagflation. In particular, they recognize and provide a lively forum for the different views of academic and central bank economists.The essays are "Monetarism in Rhetoric and in Practice," by Milton
Friedman; "Monetary Policy in an Uncertain World," by James Tobin; "The Conduct of
Domestic Monetary Policy," by Robert Gorden; "Monetary Policy in Postwar Japan," by
K. Hamada and F. Hayashi; "Monetary Policy in the Large Open Economy," by Michael
Darby; "Alternative Approaches to Exchange-Rate Determination and Some Implications of the Structural Balance-of-Payments Approach for International Macroeconomic
Interdependence," by Akihiro Amano; "'Reaganomics' and Credibility," by Thomas
Sargent; and "Coordination of Monetary and Fiscal Policies," by Albert
