Balancing stability and growth in mid-century banking

Grant Type: doctoral

Grant Year: 2016

Grant Amount: $15,000

Grant description:

How did the reorganization of the U.S. banking sector after World War II alter the relationship between profitable investment and macroeconomic stability? The researcher will address that question through archival research and by drawing on a substantial body of secondary historical and economic literature. As political debates on financial regulation and trade agreements show no sign of abating, this work will provide useful context and framing for those debates.
