Cybercash refers to the creation and circulation of online money. Guttman applies economic analysis to this electronic money to understand how it will enable the internet to re-establish itself as the dynamic center of the new economy and how this new money form will become the dominant payment mechanism rivaling cash, paper checks or credit cards. This will be the first book to look at the coming era of electronic money within the broader context of the economy.
Robert Guttmann is Professor of Economics at Hofstra University.
