A comparative examination of financial institutions in the interwar period focusing on the UK, the US, Germany, France, and Japan. In this latest addition to the prestigious Fuji Business History series, the contributors to the volume analyse the ways in which different institutions coped withthe financial crises at this time, and how they competed with each other. They also ask how this affected the financial climates of the countries in question. The discussion is divided into three parts: commercial banking, universal banking, and insurance and securities.
