A Monetary History of Colombia
The testimony provided by coins and bills speaks up to retell Colombia's history from a different perspective: its economy. In "A Monetary History of Colombia," the country's life acquires a whole new dimension where economy stands as a backdrop, cause and effect of the events that have guided the vertiginous and sometimes troubled existence of the nation. This book is a perfect opportunity to know and understand the complex cobweb of Colombia's financial system, since the formation of the Republic, almost 200 years ago, and its close relationship with national history. Since the foundation of the prominent National Bank and the first bill emissions up until the establishment of free banking and the process of suppression of the gold pattern led by England in the international scene.This is a fascinating journey that portrays, decade by decade, the events that defined eras and have led Colombia to become the country it is today.
