Howard Davies, David Green, "Banking on the Future: The Fall and Rise of Central Banking"
English | 2010-04-12 | ISBN: 0691138648 | 320 pages | PDF | 1 MB
The crash of 2008 revealed that the world's central banks had failed to offset the financial imbalances that led to the crisis, and lacked the tools to respond effectively. What lessons should central banks learn from the experience, and how, in a global financial system, should cooperation between them be enhanced? Banking on the Future provides a fascinating insider's look into how central banks have evolved and why they are critical to the functioning of market economies. The book asks whether, in light of the recent economic fallout, the central banking model needs radical reform.
