Moving money : banking and finance in the industrialized world by Daniel Verdier( )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 1,846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moving Money analyzes the influence of politics on financial systems. Daniel Verdier examines how information asymmetry and economies of scale over time have created a redistributional conflict between large and small banks, and financial centers and their peripheries, and he discusses how governments have attempted to arbitrate this conflict. He argues that centralized states have tended to create concentrated, internationalized, market-based, and specialized financial systems, whereas decentralized states have favored dispersed, national, bank-based, and, with a few exceptions, universal systems. Verdier then sets out to uncover the sources, political and economic, of cross-country variation in financial market organization, examining a growing number of OECD countries from 1850 onwards."--Jacket
The origins of national financial systems : Alexander Gerschenkron reconsidered by Douglas J.; Verdier, Daniel Forsyth( )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 19th century, there has been an accepted distinction between financial systems in which commercial and investment banking are carried out by separate types of firms and those in which "universal banks" carry out both kinds of operation. The purpose of this comprehensive collection is to establish how and why financial systems have developed - this is important since establishing how financial differentiation occurred in the 19th century may well afford insight into whether or not the contemporary process of liberalization of financial systems will produce changes in banking structure. In the 1950s Alexander Gerschenkron argued that universal banks evolved in late-industrializing nations in order to take advantage of structural incentives for economic growth. This book poses a systematic challenge to the Gerschenkron thesis, with contributions from scholars such as Ranald Michie and Jaime Reis. It should be of interest to students and academics in several fields such as economic and financial history as well as international finance in general
Democracy and international trade : Britain, France, and the United States, 1860-1990 by Daniel Verdier( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this ambitious exploration of how foreign trade policy is made in democratic regimes, Daniel Verdier casts doubt on theories that neglect voters. Bringing the voters back in, Verdier shows that special interests, party ideologues, and state officials and diplomats act as agents of the voters. Constructing a general theory in which existing theories (rent seeking, median voting, state autonomy) function as partial explanations, he shows that trade institutions are not fixed entities but products of political competition. Verdier then offers a thorough analysis of how foreign trade policy was made in France, Britain, and the United States during the period from 1860 through 1990. He discloses a reality startlingly different from previous understandings of American and French trade policies. Challenging the conventional view that special interests have dominated American trade policy, he argues that sectoral economic weight has not been a good predictor of political power in the United States since 1888. Conversely, against the prevailing belief that French industry is controlled by an autonomous state, he reveals the existence of a privileged, collusive relationship between French industry and state officials from the 1892 Meline Tariff through the Socialist victory of 1981. The standard opinion is confirmed only in the case of Britain, where an arm's-length relationship has historically been maintained between industry and government. The book's findings make it essential reading for political scientists, political economists, and historians alike
