Convergence and Divergence of National Financial Systems: Evidence from the Gold Standards, 1871–1971

Editors: Patrice Baubeau and Anders Ögren

Coming out of the Codisyna project which looked at national financial systems during the Gold Standard years of 1871–1971, this collection of essays aims to form a focused, original and constructive approach to examining the question of convergence and divergence in Europe. With contemporary as well as historical relevance, this study will appeal to historians and economists as well as those with a professional or scholarly interest in the world of banking and finance.
