The Force of Finance: Triumph of the Capital Markets

Front Cover
Reuven Brenner looks at the challenges and opportunities facing the world and provides a strong case that open capital markets, if they are allowed to happen, bring about defacto democracy - the United States in particular, but also in Latin America and Russia. He shows that to devise political, business and financial strategies, one must look at the details of politics and monetary policies, the movement of people and capital across borders, and the myths that social scientists create. The financial regulatory changes required to adjust to a more mobile world, religion, nationalism, the connection between higher education and the myths societies live by are all examined.
