Financial Capitalism: The Big Picture

It covers explanations to developments and cross-country differences in national financial systems across the globe. The focus is on how these systems are preserved or changed, through economic developments, power struggles, crises and interactions with broader social elements (political, institutional or technological factors). It also covers how financial systems interact with and influence the real economy and the broader society through both cyclical and structural channels.
