Examines the development of the financial sectors of the British and
Japanese economies during the 20th century, when large-scale
industrial companies were just beginning to throw their weight
around, illuminating from several perspectives how financial change
and development relates to the emergence of the corporate economy.
The 13 topics include characteristics of the Japanese financial
system during the inter-war period, Britain's changing corporate
structure and the crisis of central bank control in the 1920s, and
the Macmillan gap and the British credit market in the 1930s.
