Coping with Crisis

International Financial Institutions in the Interwar Period

Edited by Makoto Kasuya

Fuji Business History

This is a comparative examination of financial institutions in the interwar period of the UK, US, Germany, France and Japan. In this latest addition to the prestigious FUJI Business History Series, the contributors to the volume analyze the ways in which different institutions coped with the financial crises at this time, and how they competed with each other. They also ask how this affected the financial climates of the countries in question. The discussion is divided into three parts: commercial banking, universal banking and insurance and securities.
