This book is a sequel to Modern Banking in Theory and Practice published by John Wiley &
Sons in 1996. It is a sequel rather than a second edition, because it does substantially more
than merely update the 1996 text. In fact, this book has taken much longer to write than
the 1996 book! In the eight years sinceModern Banking in Theory and Practice was published,
many aspects of banking have changed considerably, though the key characteristics that
distinguish banks from other ﬁnancial institutions have not.
On April 6, 1998, the creation of Citigroup through the combination of
Citicorp and Travelers Inc. was announced to the general applause of
analysts and financial pundits. The “merger of equals” created the world’s
largest financial services firm—largest in market value, product range,
and geographic scope. Management claimed that strict attention to the
use of capital and rigorous control of costs (a Travelers specialty) could
be combined with Citicorp’s uniquely global footprint and retail banking
franchise to produce uncommonly good revenue and cost synergies.
Some young savers stash their cash in shoe boxes or jelly jars. Others use “piggy banks,” which
today look more like spaceships or cartoon characters. In any case, the sample problem arises. Sooner or later, the biggy bank or jelly jar fills up and you have to make a decision.
Complacency is dangerous, especially in a rapidly changing world. For
decades, Japanese bankers were complacent with a rapidly growing
economy and with cozy relationships with government bureaucrats who
pursued policies that virtually eliminated traditional banking risks.
Rapid economic growth, for instance, provided a steady ﬂow of deposits,
which in turn ﬁnanced corporate expansion. Rapid economic growth fur-
ther fueled corporate proﬁts and asset inﬂation that made the repayment
of loans almost...
What is investment banking? Is it investing? Is it banking? Really, it is
neither. Investment banking, or I-banking, as it is often called, is the term

General scanners have a broad list of attributes in mind and spend a minimal
amount of time matching resumes to their criteria. Usually, they start by doing
a quick scan, looking for the obvious scoop on the person: Did he go to a top
school? Has she worked for good companies? What functional knowledge does
he have? It’s best if this information is prominent and comes immediately to
the eye. If they like what they see, then they’ll read through the entire resume.
This approach is fairly typical of the way an investment banking team...
What is investment banking? Is it investing? Is it banking? Really, it is neither. Investment banking, or I-banking, as it is often called, is the term used to describe the business of raising capital for companies and advising them on financing and merger alternatives. Capital essentially means money. Companies need cash in order to grow and expand their businesses; investment banks sell securities to public investors in order to raise this cash. These securities can come in the form of stocks or bonds, which we will discuss in depth later....
We model the impact of bank mergers on loan competition, reserve holdings,
and aggregate liquidity. A merger changes the distribution of liquidity
shocks and creates an internal money market, leading to financial cost efficiencies
and more precise estimates of liquidity needs. The merged banks
may increase their reserve holdings through an internalization effect or decrease
them because of a diversification effect. The merger also affects loan
market competition, which in turn modifies the distribution of bank sizes
and aggregate liquidity needs.

I define local housing markets as Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), Census
Bureau approximations of local housing markets defined by observed commuting patterns.35
The SAT data that I use to measure student outcomes are taken from the early 1990s.
Consequently, I use 1990 MSA definitions and draw demographic characteristics of each
MSA from the 1990 Census.
No matter where you live, opening a bank account is one essential part of life, but you have to check around to find out what services a bank provides. Listen to the words below and consult a dictionary if you need a definition. Write a sample sentence for each word to learn how it is used in context. You can use the Internet to find similar sentences.
Aside from the short-lived exceptions of the First
Bank of the United States and the Second Bank
of the United States, bank chartering was solely a
function of the states until 1863. Only in that
year, with the passage of the National Currency
Act, was a federal role in the banking system per-
manently established. The intent of the legisla-
tion was to assert federal control over the
monetary system by creating a uniform national
currency and a system of nationally chartered
banks through which the federal government
could conduct its business.
The reader will understand that the ideas presented in the following pages admit of a much more thorough
demonstration than can be given in so small a space. Such demonstration, if it should be necessary, the author
hopes to give at a future time.
Look at the model of organization and operation of the banking system in the background of market economy and innovation trend toward state management activities of commercial banks.

After reading this chapter, you will be able to: Define money, its functions, and its characteristics; describe various types of money; specify how the Bank of Canada manages the money supply and regulates the Canadian banking system; compare and contrast banks, trust companies, and credit unions/caisses populaires;...
One website’s visitor is another website’s customer, and bringing customers and retailers together is now a billion dollar international industry. Whilst Internet traffic crosses international borders with ease, payment for supplying that traffic does not. Members of the online publishing industry have come up with a novel solution – they have set up their own member-only international payments system.
With the wide swings in the stock prices in recent years, students of money and banking have become increasingly interested in what drives the stock market. As a result, I have expanded the discussion of this market by describing simple valuation methods for stocks and examining recent developments in the stock market and the link between monetary policy and stock prices.
