About the Authors
  • Daniel Verdier's analysis of how politics influences financial systems focuses mainly on the history of banking since 1850. Verdier shows that contrasting national political institutions have led to discrete regulatory policies, and thus, different financial structures. He asserts that national political systems can counter the convergence that the market dynamic would otherwise impose. Illustratively, countries with decentralized institutions tend to have higher levels of financial regulation and less mobile capital.

    • The first study to compare financial outcomes in over 15 OECD countries between 1850 and 2000
    • Of major interest to political scientists, economists and historians
    • Unique integration of politics into the study of financial market organization

The book's connections between political and financial structure represent an original and important contribution." EH.NET, Scott A. Redenius, Department of Economics, Bryn Mawr College
