The newest addition to the RGS-IBG book series, Respatialising Finance: Power, Politics and Offshore Renminbi Market Making in London, is now available to order online.
Written by Professor Sarah Hall (University of Nottingham), the book offers one of the first detailed empirical studies of how and why London became the leading western financial centre within the wider Chinese project of internationalising its currency. The book challenges traditional ideas about financial centres, and instead draws out the ways that economic and political relations between London and Beijing serve to establish territorial fixes for capital within the otherwise dynamic global financial system.
Sarah said of the book: “I started working on this book with the aim of telling the story of how and why Chinese banks were operating in the heart of London’s financial district. As I dug deeper, the story became much broader. The book examines how the economics and politics of global finance intertwine by looking at the changing place of Chinese finance in the international financial system. It speaks to the changing international nature of finance in London, including tensions surrounding Chinese finance and the implications of Brexit for a global city.”
