Geofinance between Political and Financial Geographies

A Focus on the Semi-Periphery of the Global Financial System

Edited by Silvia Grandi, Christian Sellar and Juvaria Jafri

This edited collection explores the boundaries between political and financial geographies, focusing on the linkages between the changing strategies, policies and institutions of the state. It also investigates banks and other financial institutions affected by both state policies and a globalizing financial system, and the financial resources available to firms as well as households. In so doing, the book highlights how an empirical focus on the semi-periphery of the financial system may generate new perspectives on the entanglement between (geo) politics and finance.
