Capitalism in a Mature Economy charts the development of the City as the undisputed financial centre of the world in the late nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries, reflecting Britain's dominant position in the world economy. The book focuses on four inter-related themes: the development and operations of English capital markets including the stock exchange and the clearing and merchant banks, the financing of British industry, the role of financiers and company promoters, and the financing of British overseas capital investment and trade.
