The Gold Standard Illusion

France, the Bank of France, and the International Gold Standard, 1914-1939

Kenneth Mouré

  • The first archivally-based study to test the 'new orthodoxy' on gold standard origins of the Great Depression
  • Links problems with the gold standard and interwar monetary management to the development of modern central banking
  • The first book to exploit the archival resources of the Bank of France, which have only been opened to researchers in the last ten years
  • Makes the new gold standard interpretation of the Great Depression available in accessible, non-technical form
