The economic crisis of 2008 led to an unprecedented focus on the world of high finance and revealed it to be far more arcane and influential than most people could ever have imagined. Any hope of avoiding future crises, it's clear, rest on understanding finance itself. To understand finance, however, we have to learn its history, and this book fills that need. Kevin R. Brine, an industry veteran, and Mary Poovey, an acclaimed historian, show that finance as we know it today emerged gradually in the late nineteenth century and only coalesced after World War II, becoming ever more complicated and ever more central to the American economy. The authors explain the models, regulations, and institutions at the heart of modern finance and uncover the complex and sometimes surprising origins of its critical features, such as corporate accounting standards, the Federal Reserve System, risk management practices, and American Keynesian and New Classic monetary economics. This book sees finance through its highs and lows, from pre-Depression to post-Recession, exploring the myriad ways in which the practices of finance and the realities of the economy influenced one another through the years. A masterwork of collaboration, Finance in America lays bare the theories and practices that constitute finance, opening up the discussion of its role and risks to a broad range of scholars and citizens.

"Few issues are more important than whether and how economies and their financial systems are rendered visible. All readers with a serious interest in that issue will benefit from Brine and Poovey's remarkably comprehensive history."-- "Donald MacKenzie, University of Edinburgh" "The authors of this book are respectively a non-academic Wall Street practitioner and a non-economist academic, but the text is nonetheless of considerable interest to economists and in particular to historians of economics . . . the overall effect is to make clear how economics and finance, presented in modern textbooks as a matter of the logical workings of a closed mathematical model, in fact arose not only in bits and pieces but more importantly in concrete practice."-- "History of Political Economy" "An altogether remarkable scholarly achievement. In Finance in America: An Unfinished Story, Kevin Brine and Mary Poovey embed the development of economic and financial theory in the United States in its historical and institutional context. Further, they illuminate the interdependent relationship of the 'real' and the 'financial' sides of the economy. This is of profound importance and represents a welcome commitment to the intellectual bridge-building so needed between the domains of economic and financial theorizing. Essential reading for anyone with a stake in the ongoing story of American finance."-- "William H. Janeway, author of Doing Capitalism in the Innovation Economy" "A truly magisterial history of the American financial system. Finance in America will be the textbook for a generation or more, for those wishing to understand what has become one of America's most prominent economic sectors." -- "American Affairs"
