Fforde, John S.  
The Bank of England and Public Policy, 1941-1958.

Publisher: Cambridge UP [1992].
xix, 861 p., index, illus. "The official history of the Bank of England... has now been continued by John Fforde, a central banker by profession and a former Executive Director of the Bank. Mr Fforde has had unfettered access to the highly detailed material in the Bank's extensive archives covering the wartime and post-war periods, as well as the benefit of the oral evidence of some of those who held senior positions at the Bank at that time. ...The Bank's subordinate but restless relationship with the Treasury is central to the whole story, but Mr Fforde also examines the Bank's evolving and far from subordinate relationship with the UK financial community. The long story... is related here from the viewpoint of the Bank for the first time and in detail; and the Bank's contribution to public policy is explained while the effects of its Constitutional position are assessed."

The Farmers Bank: An Historical Account of the President, Directors and Company of The Famers Bank of the State of Delware 1807-1957
 Picture
Publisher: The Farmers Bank of the State of Delaware, 1957 Dover, DE.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "Of the early state banks patterned after Alexander Hamilton's Bank of the United States, only one is believed to have survived that has, ever since its inception, been operating under the main features of its original charter. This is the Farmers Bank of the State of Delaware. In recognition of its One Hundredth and Fiftieth Anniversary, it seemed appropriate to tell the story of its service to the state of Delaware and its people, and in this way to preserve for posterity its early history. We chose of have social and historical rather than technical economic values stressed, and with this in mind, Dudley C. Lunt, a lawyer and writer of Wilmington, was invited to be the author. He has been meticulous in ferreting out the truth and refusing to be misled by any legend or story that could not be substantiated. It is an honest story of the Bank as seen through a layman's eye. It is our hope that it will prove to be a contribution to the historical records of the State of Delaware as well as an addition to the history of banking in the United States."

Mlynarski, Feliks  
Gold and Central Banks
 Picture
Publisher: The Macmillan Company, 1929 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall Mlynarski examines the role of gold in stabilizing the world economy and looks at the role of Central Banks in Europe accumulating gold or currency based on gold in the years following World War I. "The opinion is voiced more and more frequently that the historical role of gold as the basis of currencies is coming to an end. It would be a theoretical absurdity to assert that gold can never be displaced since there was a time when gold did not play the part of money. It is premature, however, to reach the conclusion that gold must inevitably at some future time be replaced by some other metal, or that mankind will devise a new form of money better than precious metals.." 157 pages.

Morawetz, Victor  
The Banking & Currency Problem in the United States
 Picture
Publisher: North American Review Publishing Company, 1909 Franklin Square, New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "For many years the country has suffered from recurring periods of severe financial stringency. During these periods interest rates have been excessively high, and business men have lost heavily through inability to obtain necessary loans and discounts from the banks. At times wide-spread panic and general suspension of payments by the banks have resulted from runs upon a few banks by their depositors. Only recently we have emerged from a disastrous panic which forced the suspension of nearly all the banks, and, by the destruction of confidence and credit, arrested business activity throughout the country and caused vast losses to the people. This panic brought to a violent close a period of unprecedented prosperity, in which manufacturers and merchants had not unduly expanded their obligations for the purpose of carrying unsold stocks of goods. On the contrary, production had been barely able to keep pace with demand for the products of industry. Such extraordinary financial disturbances do not occur in other civilized countries. They indicate that something is seriously wrong with the system of banking and currency in the United States. The National Monetary Commission was created for the purpose of devising a remedy that will prevent similar disturbances in the future.." 119 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Edges soiled, bottom corners bumped, spine somewhat faded, boards lightly spotted, paper browning a bit but otherwise internally clean and complete. The concept of investment trusts (precursors of mutual funds) was imported to the United States from Great Britain in the 1920s. According to the Preface, "the earlier chapters deal with such matters of immediate concern to organizers and administrators as the legal status of investment trusts, their capital structure, raising of their funds, management of their investments, their accounting problems, and their earnings and dividends. The concluding chapters attempt a more detailed description of investment trusts in Great Britain, the European Continent, and the United States." The book also contains descriptions of most American investment trusts then extant, including a full chapter on the International Securities Trust of America, the first investment trust organized in the U. S. Appendices include lists of American and British trusts organized by management group, specialization, and date of formation; the complete declaration of trust, the balance sheet, and the income statement of the International Securities Trust of America; notes on regulation and taxation; the Financial Times' analysis of British trusts, including statistical tables; and sample prospectuses and portfolios.

According to the DJ: "It is the story of a conservative bank whose miserly founder sold the company and its good name to a 'genius' who took advantage of President Reagan's much-heralded deregulation to turn it into a virtual banking casino of high-risk loans and interest-rate gambles. It is the story of 'creative bookkeeping' by masters of the fine art of deception..of Lear jets and enormous commissions paid to high-pressure salesmen.of government regulators who did not regulate and whistle-blowers whose warnings went unheeded.." All of which cost taxpayers about $2 billion, a tiny fraction of the massive S & L industry bailout then underway. Shipping weight 2 lbs.

From the introduction: "This is a book about the relationship between bankers and nations, particularly developing nations, from England in the fourteenth cenury to the United States in the nineteenth century to the many-coloured developing world of the 1980s. I try to show how banking grew up into the huge global organisations that we know today, and how they operate across frontiers in the contemporary world; but I do not attempt to cover the many complex activities of domestic banking and the economic theories that lie behind them. My interest is in the international politics of banking, and the personalities that lie behind them." Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 4 oz.)
