Banking and finance is one of the most successful and rapidly expanding sectors in the world economy. From the 1960s this whole area of employment has undergone profound changes. The banks diversified, adopted new corporate strategies, introduced new technologies and faced new and intense competition. This book examines the importance of employee relations strategies in contributing to a prosperous industry. Drawing upon a wide range of original and undocumented material derived from the banks and the unions, it explores both employer and union strategies and examines the continuing competition for predominance between the ‘orthodox’ trade unions and the staff associations.

This volume presents a clear and concise explanation of why the American banking crisis of 1933 occurred. The bulk of the book analyses the actual events of the final major panic which was ushered in by the closing down of the banks in the State of Michigan on February 14, 1933. The following three weeks made history and events happened so fast that years of banking history seemed to be compressed into as many days. The events are set within an historical context which enables the reader to see the panic in relation to what came before it.

Jewish Bankers and the Holy See

The Jewish community in Rome is the oldest in Europe, the only one to have existed continuously for over 2,000 years. This detailed study of the Jewish banking community in Italy is therefore of special value and interest. Poliakov’s classic account of the rise and fall of the Jewish bankers is at the same time the story of medieval finance in general, its decline, and the birth of ‘modern’ finance. The author traces the economic and theological implication of each stage in the ambiguous relationship that developed between the Jewish money trade and the Holy See. He shows that the protection enjoyed by the Jews from the Holy See had not only theological, but also economic roots. The study ends with an account of the introduction of modern, ‘capitalist’ techniques and of the consequent inevitable decline of the Jewish money trade.
