As interest in financial markets intensifies, stimulated by the financial crisis of the early 21st century, this book aims to enrich understanding of the workings and history of financial centres in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the determinants of their success and failure. The book brings together leading authorities in the field to examine the direction of international capital flows historically in light of the nature of the banking system, market organization, the regulatory framework, and contextual political and diplomatic factors. Chapters discuss competition, collaboration, withdrawal, and re-emergence of financial centres in Europe, America, and Asia over the past two centuries.

Keywords: financial markets; financial crisis; financial centres; banking system; market organization; regulatory framework; competition; collaboration; financial economics
