This volume collects a series of Cannan's publications on monetary issues. Money was originally intended as a supplementary chapter to Wealth (1912) but the first edition was published separately in 1918 because of its relevance to the economic problems caused by the war. Cannan's views developed through later editions, with his main concern being the prevention of inflation. Modern Currency is the reverse of his earlier argument against inflation, in response to the 1920s British deflationary experience. Here Cannan argues that currency restrictions were too light and would harm the gold standard. Economic Scares illustrates Cannan's interest in the demographic problems of the day. In includes an article in which he correctly predicts the levelling off of population in Britain as a result of existing birth trends and the distributions of age cohorts within the population.
