We have a very good banking system, but you wouldn't know it. It has gotten a well-deserved bloody nose. Bankers put the country on the verge of a complete financial collapse, and it's going to take a lot of work to regain the public's trust. People lost their jobs, and families lost their homes. Everybody wants to understand how the system works so that this won't happen again. There's no one better to turn to than author Courtney Dufries, a lifelong banker, experienced regulator, and successful consultant. In this detailed and witty account of the banking industry, you'll learn how banks operate and why bankers screw up. Walk away knowing answers to questions like these: What roles do borrowers, lenders, and buyers play in our economy? Who regulates all of these very different financial institutions? Why do we have so many taxpayer-backed government-sponsored enterprises? What caused the financial Panic of 2008 that hurt so many people? How can we prevent such a crisis from happening again? This comprehensive analysis calls out the foolish bankers for their mistakes while fairly appraising the industry and its future. It doesn't matter whether you are a taxpayer, banking professional, or regulator. You need to know how the entire mess could have been prevented. It begins by understanding"Ten Lessons Bankers Never Learn."

Banks And Politics In America From The Revolution To The Civil War

This is a book about politics and banks and history. Yet politicians who read it will see that the author is not a politician, bankers who read it will see that he is not a banker, and historians that he is not an historian. Economists will see that he is not an economist and lawyers that he is not a lawyer. With this rather cryptic and exhaustive disclaimer, Bray Hammond began his classic investigation into the role of banking in the formation of American society. Hammond, who was assistant secretary of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System from 1944 to 1950, presented in this 771-page book the definitive account of how banking evolved in the United States in the context of the nation's political and social development. Hammond combined political with financial analysis, highlighting not only the in.uence politicians exercised over banking but also how banking drove political interests and created political coalitions. He captured the entrepreneurial, expansive, risk-taking spirit of the United States from earliest days and then showed how that spirit sometimes undermined sound banking institutions. In Hammond's view, we need central banks to keep the economy on an even keel. Historian Richard Sylla judged the work to be "a wry and urbane study of early U.S. financial history, but also a timeless essay on how Americans became what they are." Banks and Politics in America won the Pulitzer Prize for history in 1958.

Why are banks too big to fail? How come bankers take the profits while we take the risks? Checking the Banks is an easy-to-read primer on how a bank—and the banking system—works. Complex ideas, like what is a bank’s capital, along with leverage, risk-weighting, and repo transactions are explained and made simple. Want to understand how banks work? Want to know what’s wrong with the banking system? “Tom Sgouros offers a sorely-needed set of recipes for building financial institutions that respond to the needs of our economy and the desires of our citizens—from credit unions to cooperatives, and from special-purpose municipal authorities to full-fledged public banking institutions.” There has never been a more important time for people to understand how the financial system works… and why it doesn’t. "Checking the Banks really teaches - in a clear and straightforward way - what the banking system is and how it works. Readers learn without impenetrable academic jargon or patronizing assurances that all is well in your friendly bankers' hands. A financial system that serves the system's growing inequalities is exposed for those who want to understand what so badly needs change." —Richard D. Wolff, Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Visiting Professor, New School University, New York “This is a marvelous book! Well-written—even enjoyable to read—about local banking! Packed with important information, not only for the expert, but for anyone, activist or public official, Put it on top of your reading pile!” — Gar Alperovitz, author of What Then Must We Do? “A clear, accessible, practical, grounded, and authoritative intro- duction to how banks account for their use of your money.” — David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth What do they think they’re doing? The global network of banks, brokers, funds, dealers, servicers, and all the rest is a marvel of the 21st century—for better and frequently worse. In the aftermath of the worst financial crisis in a generation, there has never been a more important time to understand how the system works... and why it doesn’t. Checking the Banks is an easy-to-read primer on how a bank—and the banking system—works. Complex ideas, like bank capital, leverage, risk-weighting, and repo transactions are explained in clear, understandable language.
