Kasuya Coping with Crisis
This is a comparative examination of financial institutions in the interwar period, focusing on the UK, the US, Germany, France, and Japan. In this addition to the "Fuji Business History" series, the contributors to the volume analyse the ways in which different institutions coped with 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.
