The newest book by CBHA/ACHA members Joe Martin and the late Chris Kobrak is now available for pre-order.
From Wall Street to Bay Street: The Origins and Evolution of American and Canadian Finance (University of Toronto Press) explores the similarities and differences between the financial systems of Canada and the United States. The authors trace the roots of each country’s financial systems back to Alexander Hamilton and insightfully argue that while Canada has preserved a Hamiltonian financial tradition, the United States has favoured the populist Jacksonian tradition since the 1830s. The sporadic and inconsistent fashion in which the American system have changed over time is at odds with the evolutionary path taken by the Canadian system. This book offers a timely and accessible comparison of financial systems that reflects the political and cultural milieus of two of the world’s top ten economies.
