Language: English . Brand New Book. The testimony provided by coins and bills speaks up to retell Colombia s history from a different perspective: its economy. In A Monetary History of Colombia, the country s life acquires a whole new dimension where economy stands as a backdrop, cause and effect of the events that have guided the vertiginous and sometimes troubled existence of the nation. This book is a perfect opportunity to know and understand the complex cobweb of Colombia s financial system, since the formation of the Republic, almost 200 years ago, and its close relationship with national history. Since the foundation of the prominent National Bank and the first bill emissions up until the establishment of free banking and the process of suppression of the gold pattern led by England in the international scene.This is a fascinating journey that portrays, decade by decade, the events that defined eras and have led Colombia to become the country it is today.

Synopsis : As in every modern economy daily life in Colombia is shaped by institutions that channel the lifeblood of the country: money. As a former government minister, an academic economist and a board member of the 'fed' of Colombia, the author presents a broad view of the financial history of the oldest and presently second largest classic economy in South America, covering 500 years of change in banking and monetary policy. Colombia's financial institutions, banks, and governmental monetary policies evolved through long periods of struggles to serve modernisation and stability in a region with many contrary forces at work. Profusely illustrated, it serves as a catalogue of Colombian currency from its Independence to the present. This is a book of high academic value that is also a pleasure to read.
