Product Information
What is the problem with banks? Why do they seem to be at the centre of economic and financial turmoil down through the ages? The bailouts associated with the US subprime crisis alone may cost as much as $5 trillion. In this timely and provocative book, Rethel and Sinclair examine banking in America, Asia and Europe, and the circumstances that have transformed banks’ attitude to risk. They argue that government, rather than restraining banks, plays a major role in shaping their motivation and behaviour, and they call for wider-ranging regulation. The Problem with Banks is a concise, essential overview of a pressing global issue. ‘Rethel and Sinclair explain how the role of banks has changed beyond recognition over the past decades, and help us to decipher these changes in a clear and accessible style. I highly recommend it ...’ Randall Germain, Carleton University ‘If the global financial crisis has taught us one thing it is that we need to fundamentally change the position that hanks have in the organization of our economies. Rethel and Sinclair provide us with the ideas to do just that. Their aims are modest but radical.’ Hank Overbeek, VU University Amsterdam ‘Rethel and Sinclair demystify the banking crisis threatening much of the global economy. Their clear and accessible prose makes this a fine teaching text and an excellent introduction for readers concerned with the future of our economic systems.’ Mark Rupert, Syracuse University ‘This book does more than its title suggests. It proposes provocative yet realistic, refined but accessible ideas about how to solve The Problem with Banks. It is a timely contribution to anyone grappling with the financial crisis and its consequences.’ Anna Leander, Copenhagen Business School ‘Far more than an excellent primer on banks and the recent financial crisis, this book outlines a practical vision for an alternative banking system.’ Robert O’Brien, MCMaster University
