About the Author

Robert Pringle is an author, editor, commentator and entrepreneur specializing in money, banking and capital markets. A former Editor of The Banker, London, he was founding director of the Group of 30 institute on monetary affairs (now based in Washington, DC) from 1979 to 1986. In 1990 he founded Central Banking Publications, a financial publisher specialising in public policy and financial markets including the Central Banking journal, which he edited for 20 years. He remains chairman of the company. Robert has monitored and commented on changes in financial markets and the monetary policies of central banks around the world for more than 40 years. In addition to numerous articles for a wide variety of journals, he has published several books and edited more than 50 volumes of collected papers, surveys and training manuals for central bankers and market regulators. He has obtained a Master's degree in economics, sociology and history from King's College, Cambridge University, UK, and conducted post-graduate study in economics and sociology at the London School of Economics, UK.


"Robert Pringle's worldly vision is openly and proudly liberal, particularly in his approach to the state's monetary role in current times. The powerful liberal tradition plays a primary role in the book. ... The scope for defining these terms is wide open. Pringle deserves great credit for having set out the problem with such clarity." (Alessandro Roselli, Economic Affairs, Vol. 40 (2), June, 2020)
"The book ought to be read by anyone with an interest in history, politics or society. Economists would benefit, too, from Pringle's far more thoughtful dissection of what money actually is and actually does than their textbooks often present." (Claire Jones, Central Banking, centralbanking.com, February 18, 2020)
