Banking and Social Cohesion

£9.99

Product description

In many poor communities whole populations are without financial services of any kind. Local banks have been closed down.. People who have poor credit rating,single parents, unemployed, immigrants are the likely social types to suffer.

This book is about the alternatives, and they take many forms. While banks are not charities, in some countries charities are becoming banks. Elsewhere governments are working with banks to address issues of poverty and social cohesion. New forms of financial services are destined to play an important role within both development and developing countries all over the world, where banking techniques are being reinvented to take account of the social and environmental outcomes. Banks are conducting social audits, for example, or re-engineering products, processes and services to improve their social impact.

Condition: signs of moderate shelf wear to the spine and some corner bumping. Interior pages are very white and clean with a tight binding.
