Analysis and insight into trends
in money and banking, and their impact
on the world's leading economies

Enrol for our research

The Institute of International Monetary Research does not provide a paid-for subscription service (with publications, regular e-mails and so on) at present.

However, most months an e-mail and video is produced which analyses monetary trends and the banking situation in the world's leading economies. Sometimes these will be accompanied by the Institute's latest research papers. If you would like to receive these e-mails, please let us know via

It is intended - as and when the Institute's resources allow - to offer a macroeconomic and monetary subscription service for educational institutions, including university and sixth-form students.

If you would like to apply for an internship with the Institute, please contact the Director, Dr Juan Castaneda

"During my internship with the IIMR I was allowed to contribute to a fascinating paper on the history of monetary policy. My work at the Institute was intellectually enriching, endowing me with a number of academic skills. If you are interested in monetary policy, central banking and macroeconomics, I highly recommend applying for an internship with the IIMR."

Valentina Milanova, Autumn 2016

"Working at the IIMR was an excellent opportunity to develop my PR and marketing skills as it provided me a very collaborative, welcoming and intellectually stimulating environment. Throughout my internship as a communication assistant, I benefited greatly from the research events which were organised in collaboration with the Institute of Economic Affairs, where I had a chance to meet distinguished scholars, economists and researchers. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone who is interested in practising communications or enhancing their economic knowledge to apply here for an internship."

"The IIMR offers a unique chance to gain expertise in research techniques, and also with regards to the funding and development of organisations. The small size of the Institute guarantees constant contact and exchange with senior members of the institute and a comfortable atmosphere. This makes it not only a perfect place for young graduates for their first steps into professional life, but also maximises the gains from the experience. As an economics undergraduate, I especially appreciated the opportunity to conduct my own independent research project and the chance to eventually have it published, which could be a major deal-breaker for my early career-start"

The founder of Communist Russia, Vladimir Lenin, was quoted by Keynes (in his 1919 Economic Consequences of the Peace) as claiming,

"...the best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency...Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, surer way of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency."

Keynes advocated monetary stability as a means of maintaining respect for the key institutions of liberal democracies.
