About this product
- DescriptionIn this work Beth Simmons presents a fresh view of why governments decided to abide by or defect from the gold standard during the 1920s and 1930s. Previous studies of the spread of the Great Depression have emphasized tit-for-tat currency and tariff manipulation and a subsequent cycle of destructive competition. Simmons, on the other hand, analyzes the influence of domestic politics on national responses to the international ecomy. In so doing, she powerfully confirms that different political regimes choose different ecomic adjustment strategies.
