Since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) took effect at the start of 1994, production and trade in goods and services have become ever more integrated in the region. Banking and financial systems thus also must increasingly inform, adjudicate, transact, invest, insure, and intermediate all across North America. Presently, however, there is no single or up-to-date source of information on the banking and finance systems of current (Canada, the United States, and Mexico) and prospective (Chile) NAFTA countries. This volume presents the first report on the banking and financial structure of each of the three NAFTA countries and Chile.

Editorial Reviews

As an aid to integrating and expanding the industry, explains the structure of banking and finance in the three signatories to the North American Free Trade Agreement and in the country next in line to sign up. Academics from the countries themselves describe policy, institutions, laws and regulations, performance, prospects for restructuring, and other aspects. So far the industry in each country has geared up for global competition separately, and have done little to integrate within the treaty. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
