I still havent caught up on my readings – but heres a nice one. Last week’s Economist had a series of essays on International Banking. If you like/work in/are interested in banking and finance, dont miss it. What it lacks in depth, it makes up in breadth. From the evolution of the complex American banking system to the struggles of European financial integration to how Indian regulators may not be all that wrong in their seeming sluggishness in liberalising the Indian financial sector to the forthcoming regulations and policies to alternative channels of finance, it is a comprehensive read. If you dont have a subscription, this issue might be worth picking up at the newsstands.
