How global currencies work : past, present, and future

August 28, 2018
Eichengreen, Barry J., author.
xv, 250 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
1 Introduction -- 2 The origins of foreign balances -- 3 From Jekyll Island to Genoa -- 4 Reserve currencies in the 1920s and 1930s -- 5 The role of currencies in financing international trade -- 6 Evidence from international bond markets -- 7 Reserve currency competition in the second half of the twentieth century -- 8 The retreat of sterling -- 9 The rise and fall of the yen -- 10 The euro as second in command -- 11 Prospects for the renminbi -- 12 Conclusion.
"At first glance, the modern history of the global economic system seems to support the long-held view that the leading world power's currency--the British pound, the U.S. dollar, and perhaps someday the Chinese yuan--invariably dominates international trade and finance. In How Global Currencies Work, three noted economists provide a reassessment of this history and the theories behind the conventional wisdom. Offering a new history of global finance over the past two centuries, and marshaling extensive new data to test established theories of how global currencies work, Barry Eichengreen, Arnaud Mehl, and Livia Chiţu argue for a new view, in which several national monies can share international currency status, and their importance can change rapidly. They demonstrate how changes in technology and in the structure of international trade and finance have reshaped the landscape of international currencies so that several international financial standards can coexist. They show that multiple international and reserve currencies have in fact coexisted in the pastupending the traditional view of the British pound's dominance prior to 1945 and the U.S. dollar's dominance more recently. Looking forward, the book tackles the implications of this new framework for major questions facing the future of the international monetary system, from whether the euro and the Chinese yuan might address their respective challenges and perhaps rival the dollar, to how increased currency competition might affect global financial stability."--Jacket.

The Fed and Lehman Brothers : setting the record straight on a financial disaster

August 24, 2018
Ball, Laurence M., author.
xxv, 267 pages ; 24 cm.
The bankruptcy of the investment bank Lehman Brothers was the pivotal event of the 2008 financial crisis and the Great Recession that followed. Ever since the bankruptcy, there has been heated debate about why the Federal Reserve did not rescue Lehman in the same way it rescued other financial institutions, such as Bear Stearns and AIG. The Fed's leaders from that time, especially former Chairman Ben Bernanke, have strongly asserted that they lacked the legal authority to save Lehman because it did not have adequate collateral for the loan it needed to survive. Based on a meticulous four-year study of the Lehman case, The Fed and Lehman Brothers debunks the official narrative of the crisis. It shows that in reality, the Fed could have rescued Lehman but officials chose not to because of political pressures and because they underestimated the damage that the bankruptcy would do to the economy. The compelling story of the Lehman collapse will interest anyone who cares about what caused the financial crisis, whether the leaders of the Federal Reserve have given accurate accounts of their actions, and how the Fed can prevent future financial disasters.

Collusion : how central bankers rigged the world

July 17, 2018
Prins, Nomi, author.
xix, 358 pages ; 25 cm

"Central banks and institutions like the IMF and the World Bank are overstepping the boundaries of their mandates by using the flow of money to control global markets and dictate economic policy both at the domestic and global level. These public institutions have become so dependent on funding from private banking and the revolving door between the two worlds is so smooth that public and private banks are effectively working toward the same goals. Packed with bold-faced names from the world of finance--from Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi, and Ben Bernanke to Christine Lagarde and Angela Merkel--Collusion sheds a bright light on the dark conspiracies and unsavory connections between what is ostensibly private and public banking and how it affects us"-- Provided by publisher.

Meet the Frugalwoods : achieving financial independence through simple living

March 14, 2018
Thames, Elizabeth Willard, author.
New York, NY : HarperBusiness, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers, [2018]
xv, 229 pages ; 22 cm
College grad seeks meaningful, gainful employment, fails -- My year of food stamps and billionaires -- The tumblers of adulthood -- A different kind of grindstone -- That one time we bought a house -- Our watershed coffee shop conversation: a dream is hatched -- Our first month of extreme frugality -- Less makeup, more confidence -- What is financial independence anyway? -- Turns out, frugality is about more than money. Much more. -- Fighting back against the baby-industrial complex -- That one time we bought a homestead -- Birth: something that never goes according to plan -- The busiest four months of our lives -- Our third way -- Smoothing out the happiness curve.
"In 2014, Liz Thames and her husband, Nate, were conventional young urban professionals working nine-to-five jobs. But the rat race had worn them down, and they dreamed of becoming modern-day homesteaders in rural Vermont. Determined to retire as early as possible in order to start living each day--as opposed to wishing time away working for the weekends--they enaceted a plan to save as much money as they could. In less than three years, Liz and Nate reached their goal. Today they are financially independent and living out their dream with their young daughters on a sixty-six acre homestead in the woods of Vermont. In this rural setting, they've discovered the deep joy of pursuing their passions, the fulfillment of a vibrant community, and a sense of peace they never expected. Their frugal methods, as described by Liz Thames in this book, aren't born of deprivation and hardship, but rather of a conscious decision to joyfully live below one's means. Thames believes frugality isn't about what you're giving up, but about what you stand to gain through the freedom of a financially secure lifestyle. Through embracing wholesale frugality, Thames discovered the self-confidence and liberation that stem from disavowing our culture's promise that we can buy our way to 'the good life.' She unlocked the freedom of a life no longer beholden to the clarion call to consume ever more. 'Meet the Frugalwoods' is the inspiring story of how Liz and Nate realized that the mainstream path wasn't for them, crafted a lifestyle of sustainable frugality, and reached financial independence. While not everyone wants to live in the woods or quit their jobs, many of us want to have more control over our time and our money, and to lead more meaningful, fulfilling lives. By following Thames' advice, you too can live your best life." -- Dust jacket.
