Summary In this timely and provocative book, Rethel and Sinclair examine banking in America, Asia and Europe, and the circumstances that have transformed banks' attitude to risk. They argue that government, rather than restraining banks, plays a major role in shaping their motivation and behaviour, and they call for wider-ranging regulation. The Problem with Banks is a concise, essential overview of a pressing global issue.
