Abstract

This paper traces the development of economic thought about “currency boards”; a rule-based monetary policy regime, involving much less (or no) discretion than most other monetary regimes. Adopting a currency board aims to get some of the credibility advantages of using a globally respected currency without foregoing seignoriage revenue or the symbolic importance often attached to a national currency.
