Commodities and People, Capital, Information and Technology
Chapter 6: International banking and investment organs
The global mobilities of finance and capital are virtual by their nature, as compared to the physical mobilities of commodities and people. In this chapter, the organs for global financial activity are sketched, rather than the global financial transmissions themselves. The chapter opens with the highlighting of the very nature of capital and the characteristics of its global transmissions. The chapter then moves to elaborations on the major global financial traders, which include banks, stock markets and investment companies. These discussions are then followed by a presentation of the transmission channels used by these traders, mainly the international SWIFT system. Finally, the chapter portrays the leading global onshore and offshore financial centers.
