Because of the importance of the U.S. dollar in the world economy, the financial system of the United States holds center stage in this book. However, the book has a strong international focus. References are often made to the financial systems of other major industrial countries. But the truly unique quality of the book is its strong emphasis on the financial systems of the Four Asian Tigers - Hong Kong, Republic of Korea, Singapore and Taiwan - the most prosperous of the worlds economies over the past two decades. The book contains information that is important for all students of business and economics, and useful for nearly all persons working in business, finance, banking and government.
