With global finance reshaping the world economy, this insightful new
book provides a full account of the EU’s financial integration strategy,
together with a critical assessment arguing the case for social control
over global finance.
Written by acknowledged experts in European finance, this book
discusses key issues from finance to general social developments,
encompassing social security systems, employment relations, household
saving and borrowing, and the question of economic stability. Thus far,
America has been pre-eminent both in global financial markets and
international banking – so how should the European Union meet this
challenge? Global Finance and Social Europe constructively argues that
an active response is required and highlights the importance of an
integrated European financial system.
