The Money Talks series
What is money? What is a central bank? And how do these relate to macroeconomic concepts like monetarism? In this series of short video presentations, we explain the importance of money, banking and central banking to the modern economy.
These talks were given by Professor Tim Congdon and Dr Juan Castañeda, respectively the Chairman and former Director of the Institute of International Monetary Research, along with Professors Geoffrey Wood and Pedro Schwartz, two members of the IIMR's Advisory Council. In 2023, they were updated to an animated style.
