Product Description


'Rethel and Sinclair's book is far more than an excellent primer on banks and the recent financial crisis. It outlines a practical vision of what steps would be needed for an alternative banking system and how the state would play a crucial role in forging such a system.' Robert O'Brien, Professor and Chair, Political Science, McMaster University "The Problem with Banks' is a timely reminder of why we need to have a responsible political debate about banks and what they do. Sinclair and Rethel explain how the role of banks has changed beyond recognition over the past several decades, and help us to decipher these changes in a clear and accessible style. I highly recommend it as a tonic for anyone who wants to understand and participate in the debate about the future of banks.' Randall Germain, Professor and Chair, Department of Political Science Carleton University --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
