Book Reviews: A History of Interest Rates by Sidney Homer and Richard Sylla

In short you get exactly what the title says: history of interest rates. It’s probably the only such concise material on the subject. Like all the history books it’s not a lot of fun to read but a lot of useful information is in there, especially tables and charts with interest rate data. The reader is off course provided with background developments behind interest rate movements.

The book covers all recorded history through it’s five parts:  Ancient Times, Medieval and Renaissance Europe, Modern Europe and North America to 1900, Modern Europe and North America since 1900 and Other Countries and the 1900’s.

Valuable resource in todays times.
