Traditional money and banking textbooks are long, expensive, and full of so much institutional and technical modeling detail that students cannot understand the big picture. Thomas F. Cargill presents a new alternative: a short, inexpensive book without the 'bells and whistles' that teaches students the fundamentals in a clear, narrative form. In an engaging writing style, Cargill explains the three core components of money and banking, and their interactions: 1) the financial system, 2) government regulation and supervision, and 3) central bank policy. Cargill focuses on the interaction between government financial policy and central bank policy and offers a critique of the central bank's role in the economy, the tools it uses, how these tools affect the economy, and how effective these policies have been, providing a more balanced perspective of government policy failure versus market failure than traditional textbooks.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This text is truly an original approach to the topic. Cargill analyses the role of markets, regulation, and monetary policy to illuminate the financial system for students. His inclusion of Public Choice Theory is innovative. He unites the work of thinkers as diverse as John Taylor and Hyman Minsky to produce a coherent analysis of the modern financial system. I highly recommend it.' Gerald P. O'Driscoll, Jr, Cato Institute, Washington, DC, and former vice president at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and Citigroup
'Professor Cargill's book offers a refreshing new look at the US financial system, regulation, and operations of the Federal Reserve System. By emphasizing political economy and historical aspects, this book encourages students to look beyond traditional macro models and into the actual formulation, working operations and limitations of financial and monetary policy.' Michael M. Hutchison, University of California, Santa Cruz
'Combining a nice mix of economic theory, institutional analysis and historical perspective, and bringing to bear a life-time of research and study, Thomas F. Cargill explains in a very comprehensive and clear way how the modern financial system works to support the real economy and how it is influenced by government regulation and monetary policy. Not only teachers and students of money and banking, but any engaged citizen wishing to bolster their financial literacy will find this authoritative volume tremendously valuable.' Paul Sheard, Chief Economist, S&P Global
'This book is a great introduction to basic concepts about money and banking in a real world context of politics and regulation. Students in my financial regulation courses will now have a non-technical book they can read as background to regulatory and policy debates.' Hal S. Scott, Nomura Professor and Director of the Program on International Financial Systems (PIFS), Harvard Law School
'Professor Cargill's new book is a welcome addition to the stock of knowledge on financial matters and monetary policy. It fills a gap in the literature in providing a condensed, accessible and yet rigorous integration of strands of literature in financial and monetary economics that are seldom presented together in a unified framework. A great effort!' Federico Guerrero, University of Nevada
'Professor Cargill has incorporated his many years of teaching and working experience in international finance and monetary markets into this textbook making it very comprehensive, succinct, and well-structured. Although with very little background on finance, I find this book captivating and very easy to understand.' Thanh Phan, Director of Marketing and Recruitment, and Executive MBA Program in Vietnam, Shidler College of Business, University of Hawai'i
