Fragile by Design - The Political Origins of Banking Crises and Scarce Credit (Hardcover): Charles W. Calomiris, Stephen H.... Fragile by Design - The Political Origins of Banking Crises and Scarce Credit (Hardcover)

Why are banking systems unstable in so many countries--but not in others? The United States has had twelve systemic banking crises since 1840, while Canada has had none. The banking systems of Mexico and Brazil have not only been crisis prone but have provided miniscule amounts of credit to business enterprises and households. Analyzing the political and banking history of the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil through several centuries, "Fragile by Design" demonstrates that chronic banking crises and scarce credit are not accidents due to unforeseen circumstances. Rather, these fluctuations result from the complex bargains made between politicians, bankers, bank shareholders, depositors, debtors, and taxpayers. The well-being of banking systems depends on the abilities of political institutions to balance and limit how coalitions of these various groups influence government regulations.

"Fragile by Design" is a revealing exploration of the ways that politics inevitably intrudes into bank regulation. Charles Calomiris and Stephen Haber combine political history and economics to examine how coalitions of politicians, bankers, and other interest groups form, why some endure while others are undermined, and how they generate policies that determine who gets to be a banker, who has access to credit, and who pays for bank bailouts and rescues.

Recent corporate scandals, together with the effects of globalization, have led to an increasing interest in corporate governance issues. Little attention has been paid, however, to international laws and recommendations dealing with corporate governance in banking from a global perspective. This impressive international set of expert contributors - academics, practitioners and regulators - remedies the lack of attention by examining the various issues and concerns of this important topic. The regulation of corporate banking and accounting is increasingly promoted through various international bodies. Against this background, the contributors explore such aspects of corporate governance as: bank regulation and activity expansion in the US, board structure, community banks, the Enron and WorldCom corporate governance failures, a survey of characteristics of the top 100 world banks, as well as case studies of Australian, German and Hungarian banks. Scholars, regulators, and those on the boards of financial institutions will find the analysis of this understudied area of great interest.

The African Development Bank (Paperback): E.Philip English, Harris M. Mule The African Development Bank (Paperback)
E.Philip English, Harris M. Mule
R455 Discovery Miles 4 550 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The multilateral banks are powerful forces in the international community, providing loans of more than $250 billion to developing countries over the last halfcentury. The best known of these, the World Bank, has been studied extensively, but the 'regional development banks' are little understood, even within their own geographic regions. This series looks specifically at the policies and projects of the various regional development banks, which like the World Bank, have recently come under growing criticism from grassroots organizations, environmental groups and others. In the course of the past decade, the majority of countries in Africa have undergone rigorous structural adjustment and monetary liberalization. When the African Development Bank was created, and for a greater part of the Bank's history, the present tolerant political regimes, and the liberal macroeconomic and development environments did not exist. The Bank has had to operate as best it could in a politically unstable setting and among stagnant and declining regimes. It is because such problems face the bank that this book is of great value to both African and non-African investors in the Bank, as well as all Africans. The banks operational and policy shortcomings are clearly described and analysed, and every major point in the book has been dispassionately made on the basis of thorough research or from the wealth of experience of the authors.

From bestselling author Glen Arnold, this is a jargon-busting book that describes how financial markets work, where they are located and how they impact on everyday life. It assumes no specialised prior knowledge of finance theory and provides an authoritative and comprehensive run-down of the workings of the modern financial system. Using real world examples from media such as the "Financial Times," Arnold gives an international perspective on the financial markets with frequent comparisons in the workings of major financial centres such as the Bank of England and the City, the Federal Reserve System and Wall Street, the Japanese Central Bank, the European Central Bank and IMF and World Bank.

R2,614 Discovery Miles 26 140 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book provides first-hand insights on the modern considerations governing official reserve holdings and investment in different asset classes. Tremendous growth of central bank reserves has led to an increased focus on raising returns in addition to the traditional preference central banks have for maintaining liquid portfolios. Leading experts from central banks, investment banks and the academic community elucidate on this and related issues. The expert contributors adopt a unique approach in their explicit linkage of the increased focus on return by central banks and the implications of new accounting rules (IFRS) for income recognition and profit distribution. They also address the welfare gains and costs of accumulating foreign exchange reserves and the implications for the functioning of the global financial system, as well as: * asset and currency diversification * changing reserve management practices in the face of steeply growing official reserve holdings * new risk management techniques * profit distribution agreements. Central Bank Reserve Management will prove a valuable information resource for researchers and academics with an interest in central banking issues and asset management, financial sector, government and central bank officials, and representatives of international financial institutions.

This work will appeal to both academics and practitioners in the areas of SME financing, financial markets and emerging economies.

Government bailouts; negative interest rates and markets that do not behave as economic models tell us they should; new populist and nationalist movements that target central banks and central bankers as a source of popular malaise; new regional organizations and geopolitical alignments laying claim to authority over the global economy; households, consumers, and workers facing increasingly intolerable levels of inequality: These dramatic conditions seem to cry out for new ways of understanding the purposes, roles, and challenges of central banks and financial governance more generally. Financial Citizenship reveals that the conflicts about who gets to decide how central banks do all these things, and about whether central banks are acting in everyone's interest when they do them, are in large part the product of a culture clash between experts and the various global publics that have a stake in what central banks do. Experts-central bankers, regulators, market insiders, and their academic supporters-are a special community, a cultural group apart from many of the communities that make up the public at large. When the gulf between the culture of those who govern and the cultures of the governed becomes unmanageable, the result is a legitimacy crisis. This book is a call to action for all of us-experts and publics alike-to address this legitimacy crisis head on, for our economies and our democracies.

Fascinating history of the only remaining 'private' private bank in London Of the many family banks founded in Restoration England, Hoare's Bank is the only one that continues - by adapting to the new circumstances of every generation - as an independent partnership. Three centuries of unaltered ownership provide an engrossing portrait of the world that shaped both it and the Hoare family. As the family became identified with the bank which Richard Hoare founded in 1672, the lives of each generation became interwoven with the institution. Emerging from commonplace beginnings under the control of an assiduous and ambitious man, it developed during the 18th century into an institution with a character and connections that were aristocratic, the family building Stourhead and laying out its world-famous gardens. With success and wealth came fragmentation as the outside world brought distraction and the size of the family brought rivalry.

Social Justice and Islamic Economics - Theory, Issues and Practice (Hardcover): Toseef Azid, Lutfi Sunar Social Justice and Islamic Economics - Theory, Issues and Practice (Hardcover)

R2,886 Discovery Miles 28 860 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Under the rule of the current economic order, social injustice is ever-increasing. Issues such as poverty, inhumane working conditions, inadequate wages, social insecurity and an unhealthy labor market continue to persist. Many states are also unable to produce policies capable of resolving these problems. The characteristics of the capitalist system currently render it unable to provide social justice. In fact, on the contrary, the system reinforces these injustices and prevents economic and social welfare from reaching the masses. Many Muslim scholars have analyzed and, indeed, criticized this system for years. This book argues that an alternative and more equitable theoretical and practical economical order can been developed within the framework of Islamic principles. On the other hand, the experiences of societies under the rule of Muslim governments do not always seem to hold great promise for an alternative understanding of social justice. In addition, the behaviors of Muslim individuals within their economic lives are mostly shaped by the necessities of daily economic conditions rather than by the tenets of Islam that stand with social justice. Until 1990s, studies of Islamic economics made connections between finance and the notion of social justice, but work conducted more recently has neglected this issue. It is therefore evident that the topic of social justice needs to be revisited in a more in-depth manner. Filling an important gap in existing literature, the book uniquely connects social justice and Islamic finance and economics on this topic. Theory, practice and key issues are presented simultaneously throughout this book, which is based on the writings of a number of eminent scholars.

All three are victims of our dysfunctional mainstream bank and credit system. Today nearly half of all Americans live paycheck to paycheck, as income volatility has doubled over the past thirty years. Banks, with their monthly fees and high overdraft charges, take advantage of these fluctuations rather than help their lower and middle income customers manage them. Lisa Servon delivers provocative dispatches from inside a range of banking alternatives serving a steadily increasing number of Americans. She works as a tellerat RiteCheck, a check-cashing business in the South Bronx; as a payday lender in Oakland, California; and looks closely at the workings of a tanda, an informal lending club. And she delivers fascinating, hopeful portraits of the entrepreneurs reacting to the unbanking of America -and designing systems to transform how nonwealthy Americans can gain the access to and agency over their own money that they, especially, need.

Allan H. Meltzer's critically acclaimed history of the Federal Reserve is the most ambitious, most intensive, and most revealing investigation of the subject ever conducted. Its first volume, published to widespread critical acclaim in 2003, spanned the period from the institution's founding in 1913 to the restoration of its independence in 1951. This two-part second volume of the history chronicles the evolution and development of this institution from the Treasury-Federal Reserve accord in 1951 to the mid-1980s, when the great inflation ended. It reveals the inner workings of the Fed during a period of rapid and extensive change. An epilogue discusses the role of the Fed in resolving our current economic crisis and the needed reforms of the financial system.

In rich detail, drawing on the Federal Reserve's own documents, Meltzer traces the relation between its decisions and economic and monetary theory, its experience as an institution independent of politics, and its role in tempering inflation. He explains, for example, how the Federal Reserve's independence was often compromised by the active policy-making roles of Congress, the Treasury Department, different presidents, and even White House staff, who often pressured the bank to take a short-term view of its responsibilities. With an eye on the present, Meltzer also offers solutions for improving the Federal Reserve, arguing that as a regulator of financial firms and lender of last resort, it should focus more attention on incentives for reform, medium-term consequences, and rule-like behavior for mitigating financial crises. Less attention should be paid, he contends, to command and control of the markets and the noise of quarterly data.

At a time when the United States finds itself in an unprecedented financial crisis, Meltzer's fascinating history will be the source of record for scholars and policy makers navigating an uncertain economic future.

R2,885 Discovery Miles 28 850 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Monetarism is dead! Central bankers are all Wicksellians now! They target low inflation rates, with no regard to monetary aggregates whatsoever, by acting upon short-term real rates of interest. This is the New Consensus in monetary economics, or simply the New Keynesian Synthesis. Yet, this synthesis still hinges on variants of the long-run vertical Phillips curve originally proposed by Milton Friedman, the father of old-line monetarism. Contributors to the volume question this New Consensus. While they agree that the money supply should be conceived as endogenous, they carefully examine the procedures pursued by central banks, the monetary policy transmission mechanisms suggested by central bankers themselves, and the assumptions imbedded in the New Consensus. They propose alternative analyses that clearly demonstrate the limits of modern central banking and point to the possible instability of monetary economies. Heterodox and orthodox monetary macroeconomists alike will find this illuminating book of great interest.

This comprehensive, detailed and up-to-date descriptive analysis of financial sector reforms in Vietnam since 1998 critically analyses key problems and obstacles facing the efforts to transform the Vietnamese economy, particularly the financial sector, from one subordinate to government objectives and goals to an autonomous sector guided by market forces and competitive pressures. Here, the history of financial sector liberalization is traced and close attention paid to the activities and autonomy of the State Bank of Vietnam, the institution responsible for the supervision and regulation of the financial sector in Vietnam. Overall, the authors argue that ensuring a timely, fair and transparent supervision and regulation of the financial sector is of central importance to financial sector development and stability. Liberalizing financial markets is not solely a question of limiting and/or restricting government influence but may in fact involve the opposite, the influence and power of supervisory and regulatory institutions in many cases needing to be strengthened.

An incisive analysis of the state of the global economy and what the future holds. Surrounded by sluggish growth, high rates of unemployment, rising inequality, growing financial instability and increased social tensions, pessimism about our future abounds. Dr. Mohamed A. El-Erian, one of the world's most influential economic thinkers, explains lucidly the realities of the economic choices that we will soon face. The path that the global economy and markets are on is ending. But what comes thereafter is far from predestined. It critically depends on choices that we make as households and companies, and decisions that our political representatives take. The Only Game in Town details how the world is increasingly being shaken, both from above and from below. It illuminates the growing internal contradictions, the constraints that are undermining growth and prosperity, and the radical overhaul in thinking that is required. In the aftermath of the financial crisis, central banks were handed responsibility for the fate of the global economy. Lifting the veil on the inner workings of these powerful and innovative institutions, El-Erian explains why they cannot save us this time around. Laying out a road map for growth, The Only Game in Town shows how and why collaboration between central bankers, policymakers and business leaders is essential. Drawing on insights from behavioral science, economics and finance, this book provides the tools needed to understand the uncertainties that lie ahead and return us to a path of prosperity. Thought provoking and insightful, this book is required reading for investors, policymakers, and anyone interested in the future.

We all depend on banks. They help us save and they help us spend. Yet for many they represent everything that's wrong with the world of finance. Poor service, high fees, creaking IT infrastructure and a market controlled by just a few providers have combined in recent years to create a personal banking crisis every bit as severe as the global financial crisis. How have things got so bad? Why are banks unable to balance providing good customer service with making a profit? And what can we do to protect ourselves from the tricks banks play to part us with our hard-earned money? This ground-breaking book, written by three insiders, reveals why banks do the things they do. From designing products they know will rip customers off to cutting branches they know their customers rely on, they explain how many banks' failing business models force them to make the wrong choices again and again. They make a rallying call for us all to be better informed about how everyday banking products actually work and to be wary of the many tricks and techniques product managers devise to make money.
