About the Author

Peter Bernholz, Professor Emeritus of Economics, Center for Economics and Business (WWZ), University of Basle, Switzerland


'What makes this book so special is the interaction of historical detail, innovative economic analysis and public choice theory. A wealth of historical evidence, both institutional and quantitative, is used to illustrate key hypotheses from monetary theory and political economy and draw important lessons for public policy. Not only is inflation shown to be a monetary phenomenon but the monetary regime itself is explained by political institutions and events.' -- Roland Vaubel, Universitat Mannheim, Germany
Acclaim for the first edition:
'Peter Bernholz's book brings together his comprehensive studies of inflation from the fourth century to the present, showing their common elements and their differences. This is an impressive work that bankers, central bankers, economists and laymen can read with pleasure and profit. I recommend it highly.' -- Allan H. Meltzer, The Hoover Institution, US
