Global Monetary Integration

Conference held June 1-3, 2000

The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking jointly sponsored a conference on Global Monetary Integration.


In January 1999, amid persistent monetary uncertainties stemming from the Asian financial crisis, the Russian default, and the Brazilian devaluation, Argentina's President Menem recommended that his country replace the peso with the U.S. dollar. His actions raised anew a perennial question in open-economy macroeconomics: What type of monetary and exchange-rate arrangements best promote the economic growth and development of a country? This conference features prominent economists who have applied state-of-the-art techniques to the issues of dollarization and monetary integrations.The conference will be held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.
