This book has been designed to reclaim sustainable finance and to propose a renaissance of the social dimension ofBanking and Finance in the 21st century. It is not enough simply to explore Prudential Regulation. Bankers are groping for new concepts and solutions and admitting that their existing models and theories let them down, both in failing to predict the Economic Crisis and also in providing a Europe wide solution to it. As a result some top bankers have even confessed that these failings have indeed resulted in misery for millions of people across Europe. This book begins the conversation about what could come next in terms of a more benevolent concept and role of banking in the 21st century.

Besides setting the scene of the challenges for re-conceptualizing finance and rethinking growth, money and risk for the 21st century, this book addresses some of the main topics of financial power, instability and policy issues.
