This upper-level undergraduate textbook, now in its second editon, approaches monetary economics using the classical paradigm of rational agents in a market setting. Too often monetary economics has been taught as a collection of facts about existing institutions for students to memorize. By teaching from first principles, the authors aim to instruct students not only in existing monetary policies and institutions but also in what policies and institutions may or should exist in the future. The text builds on a simple, clear monetary model and applies this framework consistently to a wide variety of monetary questions. The authors have added in this second edition new material on speculative attacks on currencies, social security, currency boards, central banking alternatives, the payments system, and the Lucas model of price surprises. Discussions of many topics have been extended, presentations of data greatly expanded, and new exercises added.

Bruce Champ is Senior Research Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. Earlier he taught at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, the Universities of Iowa and Western Ontario, and Fordham University. Dr Champ's research interests focus on monetary economics and his articles have appeared in the American Economic Review; Journal of Monetary Economics; Canadian Journal of Economics; and Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking, among other leading academic publications. He coauthored the first and second editions of Modeling Monetary Economies with the late Scott Freeman.
