Description
  • Abstract

    Replication data for the paper The Gold Pool (1961–1968) and the Fall of the Bretton Woods System: Lessons for Central Bank Cooperation.Includes Eviews replication programme files and data files providing new exclusive data. If anything is unclear or if you want to replicate the regressions, feel free to contact the authors who will be happy to help and welcome replication efforts!

    Data that are unique and might interest other researchers include:
    • Daily gold price from 1961 to 1968 (this is published here for the first time and is unavailable in other sources to the best of our knowledge)
    • Daily intervention data by European central banks within the Gold Pool (read more about it in the paper)
    • Quarterly data on withdrawal at the US gold window. This data has not yet been released by the New York Fed and is unique. It is central to better understand
    • More replication data which should suffice to re-run all the regression in the paper and recreate all the charts

    The source of the data is explained in the excel sheet and the paper provides additional information.
