  1. Gateways to Globalisation

    Gateways to Globalisation

    Edited by François Gipouloux
    Asia’s trading and financial hubs have become global cities which frequently have more in common and closer linkages with each other than with their corresponding hinterlands. As this book expounds, these global cities illustrate to what extent world trends deeply penetrate and permeate the national territorial interiors and processes that were otherwise presumed to be controlled by the State.

  3. China’s Economy in the Post-WTO Environment

    China’s Economy in the Post-WTO Environment

    Edited by Lilai Xu
    The book explores the implications of both the extension of the market into key parts of the Chinese economy and the integration of China into the global economy. The main focus of the book is on the role and nature of China’s financial system and its ability to transform enterprise and household behaviour and the performance of investment finance, notably in the context of a two-way flow of foreign direct investment. All the extensive chapters highlight the issue of sustainability – some see the incompleteness of market reform as a problem; others are more willing to accept a pragmatic blending of the operation of the free market and government intervention.

  4. 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

  6. 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

  14. 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.
