-->3-in-1: Governing a Global Financial Centre provides a comprehensive understanding of Singapore's past development and future success as a global financial centre. It focuses on three transformational processes that have determined the city-state's financial sector development and governance — globalisation, financialisation, and centralisation — and their impacts across three areas: the economy, governance, and technology. More importantly, this book takes a multidimensional approach by considering the inter-related and interdependent nature of these three transformational processes. Just like the 3-in-1 coffee mix that is such an ubiquitous feature of everyday life in Singapore, the individual ingredients of Singapore's success as a global financial centre do not act alone, but as an integrated whole that manifests itself in one final product: the global financial centre. -->Contents: AcknowledgementsAbout the BookPrefaceThe Political Economy of a Global Financial CentreGlobal Cities in a Global EconomyThe Prevalence of FinanceMaking Sure the Centre HoldsConclusionBibliographyAbout the Author --> -->Readership: University and graduate level students studying political economy, general public interested in studies of financial centres. -->Key Features:This book provides a comprehensive understanding of Singapore's development as a financial centre, taking a political economy and process-driven approachThis book aims to provide readers with an in-depth understanding of the various forces that drive financial sector development in Singapore, as well as the broad implications of these forcesThis book provides a dynamic and process-driven understanding of financial sector development in Singapore.
