Booknews
Economist Wilson traces the history of the monetary powers exercised by the US Congress, from colonial times to the present. Among his themes are the unimagined growth of the banking industry and its regulation, Congress' distrust of letting the executive branch get its hands on banking, and the Hamiltonian tradition that is still the best stabilizing force. Paper edition (unseen), $17.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
