Title: A History of Interest Rates

Publisher: Wiley John & Sons Sep 2005

Publication Date: 2005

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu


Neuware - A History of Interest Rates presents a very readable account of interest rate trends and lending practices over four millennia of economic history. Despite the paucity of data prior to the Industrial Revolution, authors Homer and Sylla provide a highly detailed analysis of money markets and borrowing practices in major economies. Underlying the analysis is their assertion that 'the free market long-term rates of interest for any industrial nation, properly charted, provide a sort of fever chart of the economic and political health of that nation.' Given the enormous volatility of rates in the 20th century, this implies we re living in age of political and economic excesses that are reflected in massive interest rate swings. Gain more insight into this assertion by ordering a copy of this book today. 736 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780471732839

Synopsis: A History of INTEREST RATES The late Sidney Homer published the First Edition of A History of Interest Rates in 1963 because he believed that a comprehensive history of this universal and basic economic and commercial price was necessary. Now in its Fourth Edition, A History of Interest Rates has become a classic in the fields of economics and finance. This one-of-a-kind guide presents a readable account of interest rate trends and lending practices spanning over four millennia of economic history. Filled with in-depth insights and illustrative charts and tables, this updated Fourth Edition provides a historical perspective of interest rate movements as well as a new chapter of contemporary material and added discussions of interest rate developments over the past ten years. A sampling of eras and areas covered include: * Ancient Times: Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome * Medieval Times and Renaissance Europe: Italy, Spain, Germany, France, and more * Modern Europe and North America to 1900: England, France, and other European countries, as well as the United States * Europe and North America since 1900: England, France, Germany, and Italy, as well as Canada and the United States * Other countries and regions in the 1900s: Japan, Russia, China, and Latin America
