"[I]mpossibly good."--Brian Domitrovich, "Forbes"--Brian Domitrovich "Forbes "

Synopsis

In this keenly argued book, Benn Steil and Manuel Hinds offer the most powerful defence of economic liberalism since F. A. Hayek published "The Road to Serfdom" more than sixty years ago. The authors present a fascinating intellectual history of monetary nationalism from the ancient world to the present and explore why, in its modern incarnation, it represents the single greatest threat to globalization. Steil and Hinds describe the current state of international economic relations as both unusual and precarious. Eras of economic protectionism have historically coincided with monetary nationalism, while eras of liberal trade have been accompanied by a universal monetary standard. But today, the authors show, an unprecedentedly liberal global trade regime operates side by side with the most extreme doctrine of monetary nationalism ever contrived - a situation bound to trigger periodic crises.Steil and Hinds call for a revival of the political and economic thinking that underlay earlier great periods of globalization, and which is increasingly under threat by more recent ideas about what sovereignty means.

Einleitungssatz
The word globalization has a manifold paternity, but its modern coinage has been popularly ascribed to former Harvard Business Review editor Ted Levitt, who in a 1983 Review article argued that new technology had "proletarianized" global communication, transportation, and travel. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Great history, very weak when it came to prescriptions 22. Dezember 2009
Von MT57 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book was dazzling in its concise review of economic history and its defense of classic liberal economic principles such as free trade and the gold exchange standard. The final chapter however fizzled when they simply note that it is not politically possible for the US to return to a gold standard and thus, they simply hope the Fed will do a better job. It reminded me of a lot of articles I have read in magazines like Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy over the years. They are always very smart about what has already happened but the future prescriptions are so often bland and vague.

Thoughtful Insights 27. März 2011
Von William Tell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a thought-provoking review of monetary policy and history. What is money and what gives it value? How are currencies managed and abused? How does the world financial system work? The authors exhibit an impressive grasp of economics and policy and provide worthwhile insights on the way the world works.

The book is mostly descriptive rather than prescriptive, hence the 4 stars (rather than 5). But know that going in and you won't be disappointed.

A brilliant analysis of money, markets and the state 22. März 2009
Von Robert Ray - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a wonderful discussion of money, trade and finance, how they originated as a natural result of people's innate desire to trade and interact, and how they have been hijacked by the sovereign state. There is also a devastating critique of anti-globalism; defeating globalism demands the state take even more control of people's lives, so as to restrict or eliminate interactions with anyone outside of the country. The book illustrates its points about money with examples from the role of sterling in the 19th century to the current hegemony of the US dollar (for how long?), supplemented by useful graphs.
Our national, economic and business leaders should all read this book because current trends with the dollar cannot be sustained. The only thing saving the dollar's status as the world's reserve currency today is the lack of an alternative. However statist politicians and economists have an amazing ability to not let reality interfere with their theories. If medical research was run on the same 'scientific' principles as economics, eye of newt and salamander tail would still be major drugs, bleeding would be the major surgical procedure, and medical students would be studying the four humors, much as all economics PhD candidates and MBA's today learn about perfectly efficient markets and completely rational investors (which means, as noted by Jeremy Grantham at GMO, the Federal Reserve and most economists could not see the housing bubble as bubbles are by definition impossible).
The authors' discussion of the Great Depression is terrifying (world trade dropped 70 % from January 1929 to March 1933, kicked off by the Smoot-Hawley tariff in the US) as the Obama administration is committed to a new round of protectionism, since it is unable to resist the protectionist demands of the labor unions or its own craze for carbon caps (which Energy Secretary Chu says will require a new set of tariffs against countries without adequate caps-contrary to current trade agreements, which are evidently of no concern whatever to the new administration even dedicated as it says it is to multilateralism).
Those who are ignorant of history....

Scholarly argument for globalization 23. August 2010
Von Rolf Dobelli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Globalization remains always controversial, especially during a severe recession. Its philosophical, political and economic history is a complex tangle, but globalism's current expression is even more complicated, weaving in everything from gold to monetary policy to nationalism. Council on Foreign Relations experts Benn Steil and Manuel Hinds have written a high-level, dense, but ultimately rewarding book for dedicated students of globalization. They contend that the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank faces a tough challenge managing the U.S. dollar as both a national and a global reserve currency. This book outweighs other popular texts on globalism in its scholarship, topic range and intellectual arguments. The authors make such a formidable case that critics will have to ratchet up their rebuttals dramatically. getAbstract highly recommends this work to policy makers and executives involved in globalization, but note: The book presumes more than a passing acquaintance with economic theory.

What a great book!!! 2. März 2009
Von Pessoa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Money, Markets, and Sovereignty" is an instant classic in political economy. In addition to being the most insightful book on globalization I've ever read, MMS is an amazing tutorial on the history of economic and political thought. Beautifully and entertainingly written.
