Summary
"Recently, a volatile global economy has challenged the United States to rethink its financial policies toward economically troubled countries. Emily S. Rosenberg suggests that perplexing questions about how to standardize practices within the global financial system, and thereby strengthen market economics in unstable areas of the world, go back to the early decades of the century, dollar diplomacy - the practice of extending private U.
S. bank loans in exchange for financial supervision over other nations - became America's major approach to stabilizing economies overseas and expanding its influence."--BOOK JACKET. "An innovative, interdisciplinary study, Financial Missionaries to the World illuminates the dilemmas of public/private cooperation in foreign economic policy and the persistent paradoxes of exercising financial power in the global marketplace."--BOOK JACKET.
