The Economics of Money Banking and Finance 3rd edition by Peter Howells and Keith Bain pdf free download. When we produced the second edition of this book some four years ago we made a number of structural changes from the first edition. In producing this third edition, we have left the structure untouched. There are, however, some significant changes to content and some of these may influence the way in which tutors and students wish to use the book.

Firstly, as always, we have updated the material where necessary. Since we have always had great faith in the power of illustration and example both to motivate and to explain, we have always used copious extracts from the Financial Times (and other sources) with the result that updating is a major task. While finding more recent illustrations involved a lot of work, it was not particularly difficult. This suggests to us that the issues we thought important in the second edition have continued to be so.

Markets remain volatile and their movements continue to pose a challenge to orthodox theories of valuation; financial products continue to be mis-sold; the innovative ingenuity of financial firms continues to drive the dialectic relationship with regulators. Some things do change, however. Europe is more integrated and, from 2004, much larger. Although we still devote four chapters to the financial systems of eight different countries, we can no longer say anything distinctive about the monetary policies of more than half. With the mergers of financial markets currently taking place, we shall soon lose another set of distinctive features.

A future edition may well have to recognize a genuinely ‘European’ (i.e. continental) financial system. This trend is very noticeable in the Financial Times and the current arrangement of its tables. These have been revised substantially since our last edition and updating our comments and guidance on those tables has been a major effort. When we put together the first edition of this book, the main issue for monetary policy was the independence of central banks. More recently the issue has become the transparency with which central banks conduct monetary policy.

The anomalies confronting the efficient market hypothesis have not gone away; if anything they have increased and this has given rise to interesting developments under the heading whereby some economists, dissatisfied with simply assuming that agents make the best use of all relevant information, have gone and asked the psychologists what they have discovered by experimentation about the way in which people process information. This approach, often labelled behavioural finance, has produced some interesting results.

We have found room for at least some brief discussion of both issues by reducing some of the history of financial institutions and by largely removing the monetary base/fractional reserve model of money supply determination. In the real world, central banks set interest rates and the money supply is endogenously determined. Since we all know this, there seems little point in confusing students with an alternative approach that was condemned as amounting to misinstruction more than 20 years ago.
