About the Book

Prompted by the widespread curiosity aroused by the proceedings of the Parker Bank Rate Tribunal, the author has written a non-technical account of daily life in a City office and Boardroom. The author describes the ways in which money is put to work, and explains why the Sterling Area is so important to Britain’s prosperity. He also discusses political developments affecting the City and its future. The book includes references to America and Wall Street.
