"Dick and Floyd, two respected economists, have written an interesting and challenging interpretation of how the Canadian economy functioned under the gold standard during a period of massive capital flows as much as they reflect risk differences between imperfect security substitutes in the world's money markets...A must acquisition for any collection on international capital theory, international economics, or general economic theory."
