The Trouble with Money or Why Does the U.S. Dollar Rise and Fall and Then Rise Again
by Annette Meyer

The Trouble with Money reflects on the development of monetary theory and policy, including concentrated coverage of central banking and interest rates, exchange rates and foreign trade, and balance of payments and international currency reserves.

My attention then turns to the path of real exchange rates and other macroeconomic variables for US dollar in contrast to those of China, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Russia, and Turkey. In addition, growth of the Gross Domestic Product and other related elements of the national economics from 1995 to 2004 are studied.

At the close of the work, further investigation of price indexes, money supply, fiscal balance, currency flows, external debt, and a host of other participating economic activities of the eight nations yields significant clues as to why the US dollar repeatedly rebounds on the international scene.

About the Author

Money has been on my mind since my childhood days of clothing budget allowances, financing holiday presents, and gaining college tuition funds. However, my formal education in economics began at Brooklyn College of CUNY, continued at New York University, and was enhanced at Hunter College and Graduate School and University Center of CUNY.

I have been an Adjunct Professor of Economics at Hunter College of CUNY, President and founding member of Economists of New Jersey, and Professor Emeritus of the College of New Jersey. I have written many books and articles on money, budgets, and global economic challenges.
