A Book Launch: Money and Banks in the American Political System

March 14, 2013 // 3:00pm4:30pm

About the author: Kathryn C. Lavelle is the Ellen and Dixon Long Professor of World Affairs in the Department of Political Science at Case Western Reserve University. She is the author of Legislating International Organization: The US Congress, the IMF, and the World Bank (2011) and The Politics of Equity Finance in Emerging Markets (2004). She served as the William A. Steiger Fellow in the American Political Science Association’s congressional fellowship program, where she worked on the staff of the House Committee on Financial Services.  Kathryn also served as a United States Studies Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center from 2008 until 2009.

About the book: "With the 2008 financial crisis still sending shockwaves through the US economy, debates over money are embedded in national politics and contemporary conceptions of the American dream. In Money and Banks in the American Political System, Kathryn C. Lavelle explores the complexity of the  political institutions that surround finance, and traces the modern instability to the nexus between market innovation and regulation in a society that is wary of allowing business and state to interact and suspicious of any concentrated power in one political or economic institution."
