“This clear and well researched book on 130 years of central bank cooperation will be a unique tool for historians and economists. It doesn't discuss the desirability of cooperation but it explains how it worked (or, in some cases, did not work).”
- Jacques de Larosière, Former President, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development
“The worldwide financial crisis of 2007-08 makes this book very timely. Surveying more than a century of experience, the authors demonstrate that central bank cooperation can help to avoid financial crises or limit the economic damage resulting from them. Conversely, non-cooperation can have disastrous consequences. The book is required reading for central bankers, economic policymakers, and all concerned with our defenses against financial and economic debacles.”
- Richard Sylla, Stern School of Business, New York University
"These well-written essays on the past century of the central bank cooperation consider its successes and failures and their implications for the future.... The essays address a timely topic and are not overly technical, making the work accessible to a wide audience. Recommended."
"...a nice, short, sensible introduction." - EH.net
