This important and timely book examines the impact of different financial systems on investment. It considers the increasing effects of globalization on the relationship between national financial systems and investment, which is especially relevant in light of the recent Asian crisis.

Marc Schaberg explores the way in which countries finance investment and the institutional arrangements which are in place for channelling finance to investment projects. He specifically examines the patterns of sources and uses of funds in non-financial enterprise sectors in the US, UK, France, Japan and Germany. Using time series data and econometric tests, he measures and categorises the financial systems of these countries. He also assesses the empirical evidence to question the commonly held assumption that financial systems are converging.

Globalization and the Erosion of National Financial Systems will be welcomed by students and scholars working in the areas of money and banking as well as by financial economists.
