Editorial Reviews

The 21 papers, originally published between 1965 and 1995, express the monetarist views of Walters on the demand for money and the money multiplier, money and the business cycle, and political economy. Among his topics are currency boards, monetary and fiscal policy in the UK, a productivity model of a monetary economy showing real balances and output, money in boom and slump, the demand for money expectations and short and long rates, and the revival of the quantity theory of money. Reproduced from the originals, some double spaced. No subject index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
