Overview

This book presents the lifelong and ongoing research of Lawrence H. Officer in a systematic way. The result is an authoritative treatment of such issues as market structure and economic efficiency where more than one characteristic of a commodity is priced, both in general and in application to shipping conferences; financing of the United Nations and International Monetary Fund; monetary history of the UK and US; and central-bank preferences between gold and dollars,

The book first examines multidimensional pricing, defined as pricing when a commodity or service has several characteristics that are priced. The second part is concerned with country-group conflicts in the United Nations and International Monetary Fund. The book then takes a fresh look at historical experiences of monetary-standard upheavals and the final part considers a crucial time (1958-67), during which central-bank gold-dollar decisions were power-politically determined.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'As one who has been stimulated by Officer's work and who has relied on some of it in my own, I welcome this collection of articles from a researcher who richly deserves the accolade, "a scholar's scholar.' - Reviewed for EH.NET by Richard Sylla, Department of Economics, Stern School of Business, New York University

'Those new to Officer's scholarship will find the contents of this edition broad-based, substantive, and thought-provoking. Those already familiar with his research will find the reintroduction to his thinking in such a systematic way a refreshing revisit of a lifetime's worth of intellectual effort. Both groups will find this a rewarding book.' Mark E. Duckenfield, Economic History Review
