Abstract

228 Reviews as a driving force of economic change. Similarly, Bolton suggests not only the supply of money, but the development of economic systems and infrastructure including a credit market, and his book is especially valuable for using records of credit and debt for measuring and pinpointing economic stresses and for showing relationships between a town and its hinterland, or a town and a wider national level of economic activity. With Money in the Medieval English Economy we are presented with an important reappraisal of the significance of the supply of money in several centuries of English economic activity, which does not attempt to draw too long a bow.
