City State PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

City State free pdf The City today is the most dynamic and world-beating sector of the British economy. Increasingly, it is the City that calls the shots. More than ever, governments and industry are constrained in their conduct by the fear of the judgement of the financial markets. This book looks back over the past 20 years and examines the extraordinary rise of this economic entity that is the City of London. But there have been social, cultural and moral consequences in playing host to the world's leading international financial centre. City values - greed, the bottom line, league tables - are now the prevalent values in our society. Never has the City been as powerful or its influence as pervasive.
