Barnett - David J. Ginzl
Call Number: HG 2611 .F6 G56 2001
ISBN: 9781879852723
Publication Date: 2001-10-01
For more than a century, the name Barnett was synonymous with Florida banking. From its humble beginnings in 1877, Barnett Bank grew to be the largest and most dominant banking organization in the state. The bank, and the remarkable executives who led it, made significant contributions not only to the growth of Jacksonville, its headquarters city, but also to the economic development of Florida and the evolution of the American banking industry.
After surviving countless challenges— from yellow fever epidemics and the great 1901 Jacksonville fire to the perilous Depression times of the 1930s and the real-estate lending crises of the 1970s and 1990s — Barnett finally succumbed to the merger frenzy that overwhelmed the banking industry. When NationsBank purchased Barnett in 1999, it represented the most expensive bank acquisition in U.S. history.

But the Barnett name did not fade away. Instead, in an unprecedented action for a large, publicly owned company, a group of senior officers organized a non-profit corporation — the Barnett Historic Preservation Foundation, Inc. _ to preserve and publicize the company’s historic legacy. One result of the Foundation’s activities is this detailed history of the most important financial institution ever headquartered in Florida.

A History of the Federal Reserve, 1913-1951 - Allan H. Meltzer; Alan Greenspan (Foreword by)
Call Number: HG 2563 .M383 2003
ISBN: 0226519996
Publication Date: 2003-01-15
Allan H. Meltzer's monumental history of the Federal Reserve System tells the story of one of America's most influential but least understood public institutions. This first volume covers the period from the Federal Reserve's founding in 1913 through the Treasury-Federal Reserve Accord of 1951, which marked the beginning of a larger and greatly changed institution. To understand why the Federal Reserve acted as it did at key points in its history, Meltzer draws on meeting minutes, correspondence, and other internal documents (many made public only during the 1970s) to trace the reasoning behind its policy decisions. He explains, for instance, why the Federal Reserve remained passive throughout most of the economic decline that led to the Great Depression, and how the Board's actions helped to produce the deep recession of 1937 and 1938. He also highlights the impact on the institution of individuals such as Benjamin Strong, governor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in the 1920s, who played a key role in the adoption of a more active monetary policy by the Federal Reserve. Meltzer also examines the influence the Federal Reserve has had on international affairs, from attempts to build a new international financial system in the 1920s to the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944 that established the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, and the failure of the London Economic Conference of 1933. Written by one of the world's leading economists, this magisterial biography of the Federal Reserve and the people who helped shape it will interest economists, central bankers, historians, political scientists, policymakers, and anyone seeking a deep understanding of the institution that controls America's purse strings. "It was 'an unprecedented orgy of extravagance, a mania for speculation, overextended business in nearly all lines and in every section of the country.' An Alan Greenspan rumination about the irrational exuberance of the late 1990s? Try the 1920 annual report of the board of governors of the Federal Reserve. . . . To understand why the Fed acted as it did—at these critical moments and many others—would require years of study, poring over letters, the minutes of meetings and internal Fed documents. Such a task would naturally deter most scholars of economic history but not, thank goodness, Allan Meltzer."—Wall Street Journal "A seminal work that anyone interested in the inner workings of the U. S. central bank should read. A work that scholars will mine for years to come."—John M. Berry, Washington Post "An exceptionally clear story about why, as the ideas that actually informed policy evolved, things sometimes went well and sometimes went badly. . . . One can only hope that we do not have to wait too long for the second installment."—David Laidler, Journal of Economic Literature "A thorough narrative history of a high order. Meltzer's analysis is persuasive and acute. His work will stand for a generation as the benchmark history of the world's most powerful economic institution. It is an impressive, even awe-inspiring achievement."—Sir Howard Davies, Times Higher Education Supplement

Call Number: HG 2613 .N54 M6613 1990
ISBN: 9780802144652
Publication Date: 2010-01-13
This book is the story of four generations of Morgans and the powerful, secretive firms they spawned that would transform the modern financial world. Tracing the trajectory of J.P. Morgan's empire from its obscure beginnings in Victorian London to the financial crisis of 1987, the author paints a portrait of the family's private saga and the rarefied world of the American and British elite in which they moved, including Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford, Franklin Roosevelt, Nancy Astor, and Winston Churchill. An account of a remarkable institution and the men who ran it, this book provides a look at the real power -- the money -- behind the historical events, the eminent statesmen, and the industrial empires that have transformed the world in the last century and a half.

U. S. Bank Deregulation in Historical Perspective - Charles W. Calomiris
Call Number: HG 2491 .C348 2000
ISBN: 0521583624
Publication Date: 2000-07-10
This book shows how and why deregulation has transformed the size, structure and geographic range of US banks, the scope of banking services, and the nature of bank-customer relationships. Over recent decades the characteristics that had made American banks different - the fragmented geographical structure of the industry, which restricted the scale of banks and their ability to compete with one another, and strict limits on the kinds of products and services commercial banks could offer - have virtually been eliminated. Understanding the origins and persistence of the unique banking regulations that defined US banking for over a century lends an important perspective on the economic and political causes and consequences of the current process of deregulation. History helps to define the political constituencies for and against deregulation, the political process through which bank regulations are determined, and the way deregulation is likely to affect future bank performance and stability.
