A valuable guide to the essential elements of modern financial systems
This book offers you a unified theory of modern financial system activity. In it, author Edwin Neave distills a large body of literature on financial systems, the institutions that comprise the systems, and the economic impacts of the systems' operation. Through non-technical summaries, Neave provides you with a primer on how financial systems work, as well as how the many parts of any financial system relate to each other. He does so in a straightforward manner, with an emphasis on economic principles and the relationship between various aspects of financial system activity.
