About Benjamin J. Cohen

Welcome to my home page. Here you will find some information about me and some recent publications and research papers. At UCSB, where I have been a member of the faculty since 1991, I teach undergraduate and graduate courses on international political economy. I previously taught at Princeton University and at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University. My research interests mainly involve issues of international monetary and financial relations, and I have written about matters ranging from exchange rates and monetary integration to financial markets and international debt. My most recent book, Currency Power: Understanding Monetary Rivalry, was published in 2015 by Princeton University Press.
