Review quote

"Since its first edition, Greenbaum, Thakor and Boot has become the standard textbook on financial intermediation, a sector 'contemporary as never before.' This revised edition nicely reflects the renewed and necessary attention given to the sector." "--Steven Ongena, University of Zurich" ""Contemporary Financial Intermediation" provides a unified framework for understanding the role of present day financial intermediaries, their contribution to society, the risks they face, financial crises, and the role of financial regulation. A valuable book for students interested in learning about financial markets and institutions, and how the global landscape has changed." "--Ravi Jagannathan, Northwestern University""
