About the Author

Edited by Alec Chrystal, Professor of Money and Banking, Sir John Cass Business School, City University London, UK and Paul Mizen, Professor of Monetary Economics, School of Economics, University of Nottingham, UK


'Chrystal and Mizen have done researchers and students with an interest in central banking the great service of collecting the most commonly cited papers in this area into two volumes. I have no doubt that these volumes will find their way to the reading lists of many graduate and advanced undergraduate courses, as well as into the bookshelves of many monetary economists. These volumes collect many modern classics in the monetary policy area and deserve to read and reread - as they undoubtedly will - by advanced students and established researchers alike.' - Stefan Gerlach, University of Frankfurt and Deutsche Bundesbank, Germany
