Money, finance and credit are literally the lifeblood of the modern economy. The distribution of money and credit are essential to productive investment in trade and industry, to the maintenance of consumer purchasing power and demand, to individuals' social status and standard of living, and ultimately to public order.
This volume provides a wide ranging discussion of both the potential and the problems arising from the application of the multi-level governance literature to the monetary and financial domain. The contributors achieve this through a range of case studies and conceptual discussions of the issues raised by financial and monetary governance, acknowledging that multi-level governance has to take the form of a framework, which recognizes a fluid range of scales, and the significance of non-formal institutional and or social nodes of authority.
Drawing on a range of disciplines such as, economics, politics, IR, geography and sociology/ social anthropology this book demonstrates how International Political Economy can continue to evolve as an inter-discipline, and also how such inter-disciplinarity is a necessity for a well rounded understanding of money and finance.
