Book Description:

The relationship between the British government and the City of London has become central to debates on modern British economic, political and social life. Many have argued that the financial and commercial interests of the City exercised a dominant influence among the ruling elite and over government economic thinking; others have argued that the financial sector has been constricted by government. This collection of essays, which brings together leading financial and political historians, directly address these issues over the entire twentieth century. This important volume will have broad appeal.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The relationship between the British government and the City of London has become central to debates on modern British economic, political and social life. For some the City s financial and commercial interests have exercised a dominant influence over government economic policy, creating a preoccupation with international markets and the strength of sterling which impaired domestic industrial and social well-being. Others have argued that government seriously constricted financial markets, jeopardising Britain s most successful economic sector. This collection of essays was the first book to address these issues over the entire twentieth century. It brings together leading financial and political historians to assess the government-City relationship from several directions and by examination of key episodes. As such, it will be indispensable not just for the study of modern British politics and finance, but also for assessment of the worldwide problem of tensions between national governments and international financial centres.
