About this book

When Robert Z. Aliber's The International Money Game first appeared in 1973, it was widely acclaimed as the best - and most entertaining - introduction to the arcane mysteries of international finance on the market. The sixth edition of this classic work has again been fully rewritten to take account of the immense changes in the world economy since the previous edition - financial globalization; post-communist transition; European integration; the Asian crisis and Chinese liberalization. A substantive preface surveys the great changes in the twenty five years since the book first appeared.

Reviews

'It is no joke to make a good read out of floating currencies, sliding parities, crawling pegs, gliding rates, eurodollars and all their unsexy kin, but Professor Aliber, with a nice sense of irony, has done just that. As an introduction to today's world money issues, his book can be thoroughly recommended.' - The Economist

'Worth reading for what it has to say as well as how it says it' - Charles P. Kindelberger, Professor of Economics, Emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

'We will all profit from reading this thoughtfully argued, provocative, lively book, especially in that it highlights the complexity and 'oneness' of our international economic ills.' - M.O.Clement, Professor of Economics, Dartmouth College

'...an excellent introduction to the complex subject of The New International Money Game' - Harry G. Johnson, sometime Professor of Economics, London School of Economics and University of Chicago
