This chapter gives a brief overview of the important questions surrounding the exchange rate regimes in the modern era. These are questions about the exchange rate regime choices, their nature and consequences. The question of the implications of exchange rate regime choice was initiated and instigated by the exchange rate volatility being higher than what experts had anticipated. The chapter gives a concise introduction to each chapter in the book and how these chapters affect the surrounding topic and theme, and how they answer the questions raised. These topics are classic questions in the area of international finance, which have recently changed with the coming of the modern era. The overall objective of the research and studies conducted in the book is to help in creating a better understanding of the modern era as well as expand our knowledge of international finance.

Keywords:   exchange rate regimes, modern era, exchange rate volatility, international finance, exchange rate regime choice
