International Finance
Keith Pilbeam
Palgrave Macmillan

International Finance is a well-established and internationally renowned introduction to the subject for all university students. It provides comprehensive coverage of both traditional and modern theories relating to the balance of payments, exchange rate determination and the international monetary system. There is extensive use of data and empirical evidence to illustrate the relevance of theories and concepts discussed. 

This edition includes key theoretical and real world developments and details the Eurocurrency and Eurobond markets and derivative instruments such as futures, options and swaps. Major international economic issues, such as international policy coordination, the record US current account deficits and Economic and Monetary Union in the European Union are given full coverage. A new chapter on currency and financial crises provides the basis for a study of the 2001 economic collapse in Argentina and the South East Asian crises of the late 1990s.

This book provides a concise review of the modern literature on exchange rate determination focussing on the implications for the conduct of exchange rate policy.

The final part provides an empirical examination of UK exchange rate policy during the period 1973-89 - the motivation, nature, effectiveness and profitability of the Bank of England's intervention are analyzed.
