Traditional Approaches to the External Accounts

  • A. J. Makin

The different approaches are presented largely in order of their chronological appearance. What becomes apparent is that economists’ perceptions of the theoretical and policy significance of the external accounts evolved in line with changes in the international ‘rules of the game’ which characterised the international monetary system.
