A magisterial treatment of how Hong Kong lost and re-established stable money by the principal intellectual architect of its currency board regime. Greenwood, a monetary master craftsman, has produced what is destined to become both the standard reference work on Hong Kong's modern monetary system and essential reading for students of monetary economics and economic development.
