Principles of banking and finance
This textbook investigates key questions of banking and finance organized in three main subject areas (financial systems, principles of banking, and principles of finance). Why do financial systems exist? How is the structure of a financial system? How does the structure of financial systems differ across countries in the world? We first investigate the structure and functions of financial systems focusing on each of the three main entities that compose financial systems: financial intermediaries, securities, and financial markets. Then we find out the difference in the relative importance of financial intermediaries and financial markets around the world, and thus proposes a historical and economic investigation of the reasons behind the emergence of bank-based systems against market-based systems in different countries.
