Origins of American Banking (History of Banking & Finance)
(Hardcover), by John Chown. The set is significant both in the development of the theory
of banking and in terms of documenting the history of banking in the United States. It
examines the development of banking in the United States in the first half of the
nineteenth century. When Congress first tried to introduce a unified currency to finance a
national army it failed because of the large number of counterfeit notes in circulation.
Similarly two attempts to set up a central bank resulted in bankruptcy. Even after the
Mint was set up, the Federal government's theoretical monopoly over coinage did not stop
states from using their charter to set up note issuing banks. The resulting corruption and
fraud let to experiments in regulation and a system of "free banking". The
material included examines such issues as the role of a central bank, banking regulation,
banks and the money supply.
