A good read : Economist’s survey on International Banking

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.

    hi Surya,
    glad to see you again.and i see you started using wordpress.let me suggest one thing;i think the colour combination of deep red background and black letters make it very tough to read.it would have been better if you have any lighter colours as background.

    regards,
    arun.

    Here is a book that I am reading now – thought you too might find it interesting. I don’t think its that you will finish SOON. But to be read over a extended period of time. Its by Roger Penrose and he explains all the theories and laws that describes our universe today. Its a huge book – over 1100 pages. Its similar to on the shoulder of giants – but this time its more comprehensive and actually more readable and upto date.
    Check it out here:

    hmm. may be I will read it – I often try to get the big picture of international financial dealings by reading various articles, but often my software mind still doesn’t have the whole picture. thanks!
