Begins with an account of the development of the Norwegian banking system before the First World War and then examines the long and severe banking crisis of 1923–28, and the policies adopted following the decision to leave the gold standard in 1931. In the 1920s, the deflationary policy pursued by the Bank of Norway in order to return to the gold standard at the old 1914 parity was responsible, together with the exceptional boom that the banking sector had experienced during the war years, for the severity of the banking crisis and for the slow real growth of the Norwegian economy. By contrast, the depreciation of the currency in 1931 contributed in important ways to the successful recovery and subsequent favourable growth record of the economy in the 1930s.
