Example text

One of the first swap agreements was made with the United Kingdom in May 1962 at $50 million.

The Bank of England had a sense of forewarning about future difficulties: "Co-operation of this nature can enable a currency to withstand large disturbances of a purely short-term character but, in itself, cannot correct basic disorders that have caused or contributed to such a speculative movement.

68. 2 3 48 Chapter IL Decline of the Bankers banking function was supported. The idea was that after the arrangement had lapsed the United Kingdom should restore credibility by internal policy measures. Furthermore, it had proved difficult for the United States to have its own network increased. After the enhanced First Group Arrangement had been put into operation, markets calmed down for a period, but the SixDay War in the Middle East in June 1967 and a deterioration of the British balance of payments created new tensions for sterling in 1967.

This came out explicitly during the negotiations in March 1973, which will be taken up in the next Chapter. Floating implied in essence an abandonment of the basic banking obligation—namely to exchange sterling liabilities for another asset (dollar) at a pre-determined rate, but the British had of course to honour the sterling guarantees by reimbursing the difference to sterling holders. The guarantees lapsed in 1974. The floating of sterling can be said to be a logical consequence of the similar behaviour of the other banker, the United States, which abandoned gold convertibility in August 1971.
