1. New Horizons in Money and Finance series

    Series editor: Mervyn K. Lewis, formerly of the University of South Australia and Academy of the Social Sciences, Australia

    Finance continues to be an area of considerable controversy. Against a backdrop of both volatility in international financial markets and the reform process in many national markets, new challenges are emerging to both theory and practice. The series will provide an invaluable forum for the publication of high quality works of scholarship on a breadth of topics ranging from financial markets and financial systems to monetary policy and banking reform, and will show the diversity of theory, issues and practices. The focus of the series is on the development of original thinking in money and finance. Rigorous in its approach, it will pay particular attention to the international and comparative dimension of finance and will include innovative theoretical and empirical work from both established authors and the new generation of scholars.

  1. Understanding Ponzi Schemes

    Understanding Ponzi Schemes

    Mervyn K. Lewis
    A Ponzi scheme is one of the simplest, albeit effective, financial frauds to engineer, and new schemes keep coming forward. Despite this, however, people continue to invest in them. How are we to account for the seemingly never-ending lure of such schemes? In providing answers to this central question, this concise and well-researched book examines how Ponzi schemes operate, how they differ from pyramid schemes, Ponzi finance and other financial arrangements.

  5. Reforming China’s State-owned Enterprises and Banks

    Reforming China’s State-owned Enterprises and Banks

    Becky Chiu, Mervyn K. Lewis
    This book’s starting point is that after two decades of experiments, during which other transition economies have effectively privatised all of their former state enterprises, China is still endeavouring to find a way to reinvent and re-engineer its own state-owned economic establishments. The authors explore these reforms along with the problems of China’s state-owned banks, which have long been troubled by the adverse loans of Chinese enterprises and face foreign competition in 2007 under China’s WTO commitments. Drawing on wide-ranging case studies of enterprise reform, Becky Chiu and Mervyn Lewis combine their extensive experience to give an authoritative account of China’s enterprise and bank reform agenda, involving property rights, improved corporate governance and stimulating enterprise.

    Currency Crises

    André Fourçans, Raphaël Franck
    André Fourçans and Raphaël Franck assert that models concerning the outbreak and the propagation of currency crises share many similarities and may therefore be studied together.
