Olson, G.N.
The close of the 20th century saw a remarkably high incidence of bank distress and insolvency. This book seeks to identify the causes of this ongoing financial crisis and to draw lessons for the future, with the aim of assisting developed, transition and emerging economies alike to better cope with future crises. "Banks in Distress" takes as its focus the major financial system crisis experienced by the US in the 1980s, reviewing the evolution of the US banking system and the legislative, regulatory, and monetary policies of the 1980s which set the stage for the crises that followed. The author argues that the financial difficulties in the US, and to some extent the rest of the world, were largely precipitated and exacerbated by government intervention into the American domestic economy through uncoordinated monetary and fiscal policy, as well as the uncoordinated enactment of regulatory, supervisory and enforcement legislation and policy. The book in particular examines the importance of asset valuation, asset value inflation and deflation, and capital adequacy for banking and financial services organizations, an understanding of which is crucial to the development of a coherent regulatory framework. The author considers what can be learned from the US experience and suggests the need for significant changes in the banking law and policy of most developed and emerging economies, arguing that a stable and workable financial system requires transparent, co-ordinated and proactive governmental policies in the banking, fiscal, monetary and national economic areas. 335pp.

Chapman, David; Cowdell, Theo
In this text, the authors have examined the whole issue of the relationships between the public sector institutions and their various markets. They discuss how the public sector needs to fully understand the needs and motives of all its users before it can resource the many goods and services it provides and ensure ultimate user satisfaction. They describe how the application of market forces in the public sector is not solely about cost accounting but is significantly about the behaviour of individuals and groups in an informed society. The text recognises the complexity of the public sector and its markets. It uses a range of examples to demonstrate the applicability of appropriate marketing frameworks within the public sector context. 390pp. N.B. Corners slightly creased.
