"MacDonald and Gastmann's very fine book could not have come at a better time to explain the important historical symbiotic relationship between power and credit. It would be invaluable to anyone who seeks a better understanding of the financial markets' reactions to historical and current global political and economic events." -In their depiction of the rise and subsequent eclipsing of each of those financial centers, the authors note recurring themes: economic growth tends to be associated with innovation in credit instruments in a mutually reinforcing relationship; an environment of political stability, law and order, and respect for private property is needed for development of financial institutions; and operations of Western credit systems are subject to instability and periodic rises. Description of consumer access to credit and discussion of globalization of international financial markets conclude the volume.- - Choice -MacDonald and Gastmann's very fine book could not have come at a better time to explain the important historical symbiotic relationship between power and credit.
