Review quote

"Smith and Walter have done an excellent job of providing up-to-date information on recent developments and outlining competitive strategies for the future. Their book is very much hands-on information for those involved in or interested in learning the essentials of how these markets operate. The authors include a large amount of data and many useful diagrams to help the reader understand these changing markets and strategies...This book will be especially useful to business students at the undergraduate and graduate level and to those engaged in global banking. Highly recommended."--CHOICE, R. J. Philips, Colorado State Universityshow more
