In Chapter 1 we looked at the different kinds of financial claim under a number of broad headings, very few of which contained familiar names. In this chapter we shall begin to consider the types of claim which make up these broad headings and to describe their characteristics. Because this is not a textbook on monetary theory, we shall not attempt to cover a wide range of theoretical points, but shall limit ourselves to those parts of theory which are essential for understanding future chapters.
