Topic

“Floating Exchange Rates in Interwar Japan (戦間期日本の変動相場制度)”

Abstract

The seminar, based on the author’s ongoing work, explores the nature of the “flexible” exchange rate policy of the interwar period. Following a suspension in September 1917, Japan temporarily restored the gold standard in January 1930 but permanently abandoned it in December 1931. The yen, therefore, was a floating currency from September 1917 to January 1929 and again from December 1931 to March 1933, when it was pegged to the pound sterling. The seminar discusses, among other things, how the system operated, what drove the monetary authorities’ policy decisions, how best to characterize the system, and the ultimate question of whether it was a success or a failure.
