Kenny, Seán LU and Lennard, Jason LU (2018) In Economic History Review
Abstract
This article constructs new monetary aggregates for Ireland between 1840 and 1921.Three major findings are gleaned from the data. First, we find that the degreeof monetization on the eve of the Famine was comparatively high. Second, wefind an unprecedented monetary contraction during the Famine. Third, in contrastto previous research, we find that the failure of the Munster Bank in 1885 hadramifications for confidence in, and the stability of, the banking system.
