Supplementary Readings

  1. A brief history of money on Wikipedia.
  2. If you want to read more about Volcker and his "taming" of the inflation rate, there's a short and non-technical description of why it was important in this article. A more detailed exposition can be found in this paper, and an even more detailed account, though maybe more technical, is included in this paper (you can skip sections 3 and 4).
  3. The Wikipedia entry on Barings Bank, describing its failure. You can find a more detailed account in the entry for Nick Leeson, the trader that single-handedly bankrupted the bank.
  4. An article in Business Week about the 1994 bankruptcy of Orange County.
