Handbooks in Financial Globalization: 3-Volume SET


  • Gerard Caprio, Williams College, Williamstown, MA

These three volumes present the full complexity of the history, practices, and outlook of 21st century global financial integration. The Handbook of Key Global Financial Markets, Institutions, and Infrastructure explores the growth of markets, intermediaries, rights, practices, and standards worldwide. The Evidence and Impact of Financial Globalization devotes separate articles to specific crises, the conditions that cause them, and the longstanding arrangements devised to address them. The Handbook of Safeguarding Global Financial Stability examines our political economy, particularly the ways in which formal and informal policies as well as financial theories and technical models inhabit our institutions, strategies, and tactics. For those seeking substantial, authoritative descriptions and summaries, these volumes will replace books, journals, and other information sources with a coherent, easy-to-use reference work.
