The Bank of England and Public Policy, 1941-1958 Summary

The Bank of England and Public Policy, 1941-1958 by John Fforde

In this book, originally published in 1992, the official history of the Bank of England was continued into the late wartime and early postwar periods. The author's position as a central banker by trade and a former Executive Director of the Bank put him in an ideal position to carry out this analysis. His account examines mainly how the Bank moved on after the hurried nationalisation of 1946 and led a vigourous though often frustrated life in the postwar years, when sterling was subject to recurrent external weakness and when domestic monetary policy was beset by difficulties of content and conduct. The Bank's relationship with the Treasury is central to the story, but Mr Fforde also examines its evolving relationship with the financial community and with central banks overseas. The Bank's contribution to public policy, in a frequently controversial field, is explained and assessed.
