Banking for the Uninitiated
Over the past few years, Urban Logic has looked at how banks reflect society’s priorities, and cause multiple impacts in doing so.
In order to understand “banking,” numerous books, professional journals and a deluge of popular works after the 2008 Credit Crisis have come forward to demystify the “black box of banking”, so that it can be simply understood.
Two of our favorite books that explain banking as it is currently practiced today are:
- The Bankers New Clothes by Anat Admati & Martin Hellwig (ISBN: 9781400846566 2013)
- Bank Management and Financial Services by Peter Rose and Sylvia Hudgins (ISBN: 0078034671 – 2013)
Other good reads on banking and money tell tales of bankers and banker hubris, and those are fun literature too!
