Originally published in 1977, The International Monetary Tangle presents a translation of Guindey’s report on international monetary issues. Guindey examines the Bretton Woods System which lasted until 1971 as well as the new monetary regime that took its place and discusses the key debates that came along with it. Guindey takes a historical angle in this study and focuses on what lessons can be learnt from the past in terms of international money management. This title will be of interest to students of Economics.
