Well, the summer starts here. My chart for a new module on global finance. hopefully I’ll have it filled out by the end of August. I’d be looking to do a variation of this for activists as well. As always, I’ll post stuff here as I go along and sure see what happens. The module is in five parts:
2. Architecture of Global Finance
3. The Hunt for Yield
4. Ireland and Global Finance
Half-thinking of using the module as the basis for a short textbook on the subject, aimed mainly at activists and a non-academic audience. Again, sure see what happens.
Editorial, Finance [Dublin], May 1987
The coming of age of the financial services industry in Ireland lies not just in the development of a fully integrated financial system after 55 years of independence, but also in a change in the concept and attitude towards finance in Ireland. Rapidly disappearing is the historic distrust of the financier as a modern-day gaimbin [gombeen] man (”interest man”). In its place is a new understanding of the financial services sector as a real contributor to the development of the economy, to the development of exports, increased output, and, yes, jobs.”
