Presider:

Description

In Money, Markets, and Sovereignty, Benn Steil and Manuel Hinds present a fascinating intellectual history of monetary nationalism from the ancient world to the present. Today, the authors argue, 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. Join Benn Steil for a discussion of his new book and the implications of monetary nationalism for today’s global economy.
