Study Notes

Foreign Exchange Rate

  • Foreign exchange rate refers to the value of one country's currency in terms of another country's currency.

Gold Standard

  • During the gold standard, exchange rates were determined by the gold content of currencies.
  • The gold standard ensured that currencies were backed by gold reserves, which maintained price stability and prevented inflation.

Printing New Money

  • Printing new money not backed by gold increased the money supply, causing inflation and decreasing the value of currency.
  • This led to a decrease in the exchange rate, as the value of the currency decreased.

Impact of World War I

  • World War I led to the suspension of the gold standard, as countries printed more money to finance their war efforts.
  • The war marked the beginning of the end of the gold standard, as countries began to abandon it in favor of other monetary systems.
