Today, interest in monetary history has been revived. Economists are examing the "structure" of money and banking: what is money and what are banks? With new technologies, overwhelming market forces, and changes in law and regulation, the answers that had been taken for granted have been revealed to be inadequate. Money and Banking spans the period from the founding of the country to the present. The unifying theme is the consideration of the legal and economic underpinnings of money and banking during the several monetary regimes found in the history of the United States.

Batchelder and David Glasner, Michael D. Bordo, Mark Toma, Larry Schweikart, Dwight R. Lee.
