Edited by three leading scholars whose expertise spans finance, economics, and law, Finance in Asia is a new collection from Routledge’s Critical Concepts in Finance series. The foundational and cutting-edge scholarship assembled in this easy-to-use, one-stop resource enables users easily to access and make sense of an explosion of scholarly output on Asia’s distinctive financial institutions, markets, and systems. The collection will be especially welcomed by scholars and students seeking a full understanding of contemporary Asian finance, particularly those in search of a forward-looking view of the second generation of Asian finance. The collection will also appeal to researchers eager to engage with vital questions about law, institutions, and regulation, and their impact on transaction formation and performance, and on the behaviour of the financial sector in Asia. Indeed, in the current economic climate, with international financial systems still buffeted by extreme turbulence, such questions have never been more pertinent.
Finance in Asia is fully indexed. It also includes a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editors, which places the material in its intellectual and historical context.
