Reading about Finance’s Role

My very first post was about the role of finance over the past several decades and the potential cost to society. I have wanted to think more about this issue before coming to certain conclusions. I’m still reading through some items, but I thought I would share some of them here to interested readers.

1. Voxeu.org now has an entire book called The Future of Banking, edited by Thorsten Beck. I look forward to reading this.

2. Another link from Voxeu.org, a piece on the role of the financial sector by Wouter den Haan

3. From 2010 (I’ve been meaning to read this for quite some time): The Future of Finance: The LSE Report, which includes contributions from Martin Wolf and Simon Johnson.
