About this book


The global scope of the changes in the international financial and monetary systems ensured that no nation-state could protect itself from their effects. The quarter-century, 1970-95, included the most extensive legislative overhaul of financial services policy since the Great Depression, if not the greatest set of changes ever. This book examines how five such states - Canada, France, Germany, UK, USA - adapted by reforming their financial services policies.
