  1. Islamic Capitalism and Finance

    Islamic Capitalism and Finance

    Murat Çizakça
    This illuminating and thought-provoking book questions whether classical Islamic capitalism, which has served Muslims so well for centuries, can provide a viable alternative world economic system. In the current recession – the worst since 1929 – this is surely a provocative question. But if Islamic capitalism is to emerge as a viable alternative, its nature and systems must be well understood. Learn More

  3. Financial Regulation in Crisis?

    Financial Regulation in Crisis?

    Edited by Joanna Gray, Orkun Akseli
    The depositor run on the Northern Rock bank in September 2007, which led to the bank’s subsequent nationalisation was the first run on a UK bank for nearly 150 years and was a seminal moment in the unfolding global financial crisis. This book provides a detailed legal analysis of the role played by financial law and regulation during this event, and the impact the episode made on the law. The contributors to the book explore and elaborate upon the legal technique of securitisation, and how Northern Rock itself created and employed securitised financial assets. There is also in-depth discussion and analysis of the origin of the problems experienced in the wholesale interbank markets surrounding the Northern Rock crisis. Learn More

  11. The Future of Futures

    The Future of Futures

    Elena Esposito
    This book reconstructs the dynamics of economics, beginning explicitly with the role and the relevance of time: money uses the future in order to generate present wealth. Financial markets sell and buy risk, thereby binding the future. Elena Esposito explains that complex risk management techniques of structured finance produce new and uncontrolled risks because they use a simplified idea of the future, failing to account for how the future reacts to attempts at controlling it. During the recent financial crisis, the future had already been used (through securitizations, derivatives and other tools) to the extent that we had many futures, but no open future available.

  16. Corporate Governance in Modern Financial Capitalism

    Corporate Governance in Modern Financial Capitalism

    Markus Kallifatides, Sophie Nachemson-Ekwall, Sven-Erik Sjöstrand
    This insightful book focuses upon corporate governance processes, and explores the conditions required for effective corporate governance and control in 21st century globalized and financialized economies. In presenting a comprehensive study of a cross-border hostile corporate take-over process, describing the actors, institutions and events involved, this book examines and questions the current forms of corporate governance and control – both from a national and a global perspective. Using Old Mutual’s takeover of Skandia as a case study, the authors address corporate governance theory, and highlight its two fundamental dimensions: financial and operational flows. Learn More

  17. Darwin’s Clever Neighbour

    Darwin’s Clever Neighbour

    D. P. O’Brien, John Creedy
    George Warde Norman, 1793–1882, a Director of the Bank of England 1821–72, was an important figure in both the development and the implementation of the theory of monetary control, embodied in the Bank Charter Act of 1844. Norman wrote an Autobiography covering his first 54 years, and this provides a remarkable portrait not only of Norman himself but of the social and intellectual network in which he lived. He was an intimate of the Utilitarians, especially George Grote with whom there was ultimately a quarrel which has never been made public before. He was a businessman, at first in the timber trade, in which connection he spent time in Norway, and made the acquaintance of Napoleon’s Marshall, Bernadotte, by then King of Sweden and Norway, and then in fire insurance. He also wrote on economic matters, not only on monetary issues but also on trade theory and taxation. The Autobiography, which has survived fire and flood, was rediscovered in the 1960s by D.P. O’Brien who at that time prepared a typescript which has been used by scholars. With the release of this edition, the work is now available for the first time in a fully edited and corrected version. It should be of interest to historians of economic thought, economic historians, and students of nineteenth century intellectual history and society. Learn More

  20. Shareholding System Reform in China

    Shareholding System Reform in China

    Shu-Yun Ma
    Since the 1980s, there has been a global wave of transfer of state assets to private hands. China is a relatively late participant of this worldwide trend, yet, in the last decade it has emerged as one of the largest privatizing countries. Shu-Yun Ma argues that China’s privatization is not based on any grand blueprint; rather, it is privatization by ‘groping for stones to cross the river’, a well-known metaphor often attributed to Deng Xiaoping, meaning that the reform simply proceeds on a trial-and-error basis without being guided by any theory.
