The International Monetary System: Highlights from the Fifty Years of Princetons Essays in International Finance
Edited by Peter B. Kenen

For 50 years the International Finance Section of Princeton University has served as a stimulus and a focal point for serious work on international financial issues, publishing articles too long or idiosyncratic or (these days) nontechnical to appear in professional economic journals. This volume celebrates its 50th anniversary by republishing for a wider audience 12 of the most influential essays on international finance and the functioning of the international monetary system.
