Description - Bank Deregulation and Monetary Order by George Selgin
Can the "invisible hand" handle money? In this collection of essays George Selgin challenges the view that government regulation creates monetary order and stability, and instead shows it to be the main source of monetary crisis. The volume is divided into three sections. Part one refutes conventional wisdom holding that any monetary system lacking government regulation is "inherently unstable", and looks at the workings of market forces in an otherwise unregulated banking system. Part two draws on both theory and historical experience to show how various kinds of government interference undermine the inherent efficiency, safety, and stability of a free monetary system. Part three completes the argument that government regulation is unsound unless it delivers a stable output price-level.
