Research Handbook on Central Banking

About the eBook

The Research Handbook on Central Banking focuses on global central banks as institutions and not abstractions, providing historical and practical detail about how central banks work and the challenges they face. This Research Handbook offers the most interdisciplinary treatment of global central banks published to date by addressing key questions regarding where they come from, how they have changed, and the challenges they face during uncertain times.

Divided into two parts, the Research Handbook firstly takes readers on a global tour, covering central banks in the US, Latin America, Europe, Eastern Europe, Japan, China, Africa, and more. In the second part, authors delve into themes of broad application, including transparency, independence, unconventional monetary policy, payment systems, and crisis response. The interdisciplinary mix of contributors include some of the most prominent names in central banking as well as a new generation of scholars who are shaping the conversation about central banks and their role in global politics, economics, and society at large.

Interdisciplinary and innovative, this Research Handbook will prove essential reading for scholars focusing on central banks, financial regulation, global governance, and related areas, as well as for central bankers and employees at central banks.
