Reviews & endorsements
"Norway's rich monetary history spans everything from monetary union with other Scandinavian countries in the nineteenth century to the gold standard, financial repression, managed floating, and now inflation targeting. Not only aficionados of Norway but also readers interested in comparative monetary regimes will find much that is new, interesting, and illuminating in this important and impeccably documented book."

"Congratulations to the Norges Bank on its 200th birthday. Its best present is this excellent history of its long and eventful life, in five parts, a worthy sibling to the earlier tomes on Norwegian historical monetary statistics. This is a feast for all those who enjoy monetary history. The authors have an excellent understanding of the historical problems and processes facing Central Banks in general, and the Norges Bank in particular."
Charles Goodhart, London School of Economics and Political Science
"This book is a most welcome addition to the growing and important literature on monetary history. The authors, with a mix of expertise in economics, history and statistics, reveal fluently the very varied course of Norwegian monetary history across two centuries. They add hugely to our understanding of Norwegian experience and by extension to our understanding of monetary history more generally."
Professor Forrest Capie, Emeritus Professor, Cass Business School, City University London
"Capitalizing on impressive new quantitative evidence, the authors give us the monetary history of Norway, set against the backdrop of the economic and political developments that brought a small peripheral economy to be one of the richest counties in the world. This book is a standard reference for anyone interested in the history and economy of Scandinavia and Europe."
