Emerging Domestic Markets How Financial Entrepreneurs Reach Underserved Communities in the United States [Audiobook]


English | ASIN: B0B8F25RTR | 2022 | 11 hours and 9 minutes | MP3 | M4B | 306 MB
The term "emerging market" refers to a country where incomes are currently low but that is likely to experience rapid growth and increasing economic competitiveness. Yet many of the characteristics of emerging markets-including demographic shifts, rising educational attainment, and growing urbanization-are also found closer to home, in communities that have been underserved by the existing financial-services system. Gregory Fairchild introduces listeners to the rising set of entrepreneurs whose efforts to reach marginalized groups are reshaping the emerging markets of the United States. He explores how minority-owned and community-development institutions are achieving innovations in consumer- and small-business-targeted financial services to further economic development and reduce inequality. He analyzes the models of these organizations, measures their successes and failures, and provides suggestions for sustainable growth of similar organizations. Bringing together quantitative research, powerful stories of real-world entrepreneurs, and nuanced insights on public policy, Emerging Domestic Markets offers a vital set of prescriptions for inclusive financial development.

, "The American Political Economy: Politics, Markets, and Power "
English | ISBN: 1316516369 | 2021 | 400 pages | AZW3 | 6 MB
This volume brings together leading political scientists to explore the distinctive features of the American political economy. The introductory chapter provides a comparatively informed framework for analyzing the interplay of markets and politics in the United States, focusing on three key factors: uniquely fragmented and decentralized political institutions; an interest group landscape characterized by weak labor organizations and powerful, parochial business groups; and an entrenched legacy of ethno-racial divisions embedded in both government and markets. Subsequent chapters look at the fundamental dynamics that result, including the place of the courts in multi-venue politics, the political economy of labor, sectional conflict within and across cities and regions, the consolidation of financial markets and corporate monopoly and monopsony power, and the ongoing rise of the knowledge economy. Together, the chapters provide a revealing new map of the politics of democratic capitalism in the United States.
