Money, Markets, and Sovereignty
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.

Join Benn Steil for a discussion of his new book and the implications of monetary nationalism for today’s global economy.
