Show Summary Details


Summarizes the generic processes and linkages that comprise the global financial intermediation discussed in this book – the basic “financial hydraulics” that ultimately drive efficiency in the financial system, and its effect on real‐sector resource allocation and economic growth. These factors together determine the performance of the global financial system in optimizing industrial structure, resource allocation, and conditions for corporate success. Explains the CAP (Client, Arena, Product) model that is central to the sound “strategic positioning” of an enterprise competing in the global marketplace, and reviews the areas of management competence involved.
