Banking on the future : the fall and rise of central banking by H Davies( Book )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crash of 2008 revealed that the world's central banks had failed to offset the financial imbalances that led to the crisis, and lacked the tools to respond effectively. What lessons should central banks learn from the experience, and how, in a global financial system, should cooperation between them be enhanced? Banking on the Futureprovides a fascinating insider's look into how central banks have evolved and why they are critical to the functioning of market economies. The book asks whether, in light of the recent economic fallout, the central banking model needs radical reform. Supported by interviews with leading central bankers from around the world, and informed by the latest academic research, Banking on the Futureconsiders such current issues as the place of asset prices and credit growth in anti-inflation policy, the appropriate role for central banks in banking supervision, the ways in which central banks provide liquidity to markets, the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of central banks, the culture and individuals working in these institutions, as well as the particular issues facing emerging markets and Islamic finance. Howard Davies and David Green set out detailed policy recommendations, including a reformulation of monetary policy, better metrics for financial stability, closer links with regulators, and a stronger emphasis on international cooperation. Exploring a crucial sector of the global economic system, Banking on the Future offers new ideas for restoring financial strength to the foundations of central banking
Can financial markets be controlled? by H Davies( Book )

16 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Global Financial Crisis overturned decades of received wisdom on how financial markets work, and how best to keep them in check. Since then a wave of reform and re-regulation has crashed over banks and markets. Financial firms are regulated as never before. But have these measures been successful, and do they go far enough? In this smart new polemic, former central banker and financial regulator, Howard Davies, responds with a resounding 'no'. The problems at the heart of the financial crisis remain. There is still no effective co-ordination of international monetary policy. The financial sector is still too big and, far from protecting the economy and the tax payer, recent government legislation is exposing both to even greater risk. To address these key challenges, Davies offers a radical alternative manifesto of reforms to restore market discipline and create a safer economic future for us all."--Publisher's description
Global financial regulation : the essential guide by H Davies( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As international financial markets have become more complex, so has the regulatory system which oversees them. The Basel Committee is just one of a plethora of international bodies and groupings which now set standards for financial activity around the world, in the interests of protecting savers and investors and maintaining financial stability. These groupings, and their decisions, have a major impact on markets in developed and developing countries, and on competition between financial firms. Yet their workings are shrouded in mystery, and their legitimacy is uncertain. Here, for the first time, two men who have worked within the system describe its origins and development in clear and accessible terms. Howard Davies was the first Chairman of the UK's Financial Services Authority and the single regulator for the whole of Britain's financial sector. David Green was Head of International Policy at the FSA, after spending thirty years in the Bank of England, and has been closely associated with the development of the current European regulatory arrangements. This guide to the international system will be invaluable for regulators, financial market practitioners and for students of the global financial system, wherever they are located. The book identifies weaknesses in a system faced with new types of institutions such as hedge funds and private equity, as well as the growth in importance of major developing countries, who have been excluded so far from the key decision-making fora. It will be essential reading for all those interested in the development of financial markets and the way they are regulated
The financial crisis : who is to blame? by H Davies( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is still no consensus on who or what caused the financial crisis which engulfed the world, beginning in the summer of 2007. A huge number of suspects have been identified, from greedy investment bankers, through feckless borrowers, dilatory regulators and myopic central bankers to violent video games and high levels of testosterone among the denizens of trading floors. There is not even agreement on whether the crisis shows a need for more government intervention in markets, or less: some maintain that government encouragement of home ownership lay at the heart of the problem in the US
