Product Description

The globalization of finance is widely recognised as one of the most significant features of the contemporary world. In this timely new book, Tony Porter guides students through current debates about global finance and discusses the extent to which the development of a global marketplace affects our daily lives. He examines the complex networks of public-sector and non-governmental institutions and practices that facilitate the globalization of finance and provide an emerging set of arrangements for regulating it. The book is both comprehensive and innovative, and includes chapters on banking, securities markets, foreign direct investment, private authority, the role of developing and transition countries, global civil society, gender, the politics of risk practices and financial crises, and democracy. Written for students approaching the topic for the first time, this book provides a coherent, empirical and theoretically rigorous introduction to the governance of global finance.

Review

“Tony Porter has long been a leading scholar in examining and explaining the tangled webs of organization and politics that characterize global finance in the twenty-first century. These webs cut across and link the categories of public and private, domestic and international, market and hierarchy, and formal and informal institutions and processes. In a world that is both shrinking and yet developing more and more complex forms of multilevel governance, Globalization and Finance does double duty. It is both a textbook that introduces this potential minefield in clear and accessible terms, and a path-breaking exercise in paradigm-building.”Philip G. Cerny, Rutgers University “Tony Porter’s Globalization and Finance covers everything you ever wanted to know on the subject: theory, data, history, policy, impacts and ethics. All is meticulously researched, thoughtfully analyzed, and lucidly written. Porter makes global finance both interesting and accessible. An empowering read!”Jan Aart Scholte, University of Warwick “Tony Porter not only tackles the most salient issues and approaches relating to the globalization of finance, but does so in a highly accessible manner. Students will find this book an invaluable introduction to the topic.” Susanne Soederberg, Queen’s University at Kingston, Ontario "Tony Porter's book presents an interesting viewpoint on globalisation and global finance.
