In this short but ambitious book, Arjun Appadurai argues that the failure of the financial system in 2007-08 in the United States was primarily a failure of language. This argument does not deny that greed, ignorance, weak regulation, and irresponsible risk-taking were important factors in the collapse. But the new role of language in the marketplace, for Appadurai, is the condition of possibility for all these more easily identifiable flaws. Attempts to rectify the social pathologies of contemporary finance must address that failure of language. "Banking on Words "focuses on derivatives as the distinctive innovation of our financial era. Derivatives are written promises concerning the uncertain future prices of financial assets and the substance of these contracts is expressed in terms of money. The recent failure of derivatives markets was systematic and should be understood as failed promises. While it is well-known that derivatives pile risk on risk with little basis in real production and trade, Appadurai reveals this process in a fresh light from which some policy conclusions may be drawn. While critical of derivative finance s present social infrastructure and supporting ideology, Appadurai acknowledges its capacity for creating vast new forms of wealth and asks the crucial question: if we want access to that wealth, what kind of social arrangements would we need to make sure that it benefits all of society rather than reinforcing a system that benefits the few who are already well off? His bold answer involves not the repair of the force of promises but rather the repair and reconstruction of the idea of the individual to enable new sorts of solidarity between dividuals, agents whose very partiality may allow for new aggregations of aspiration, interest and affiliation. This amounts to nothing less than a new ideology of sociality."

Words constantly lose and acquire new meanings, and when these words describe financial activities, people must correctly understand and use them or suffer the consequences. Many financial transactions occur among professionals, who are fluent in the technical vocabularies of their trades, but when transactions include people of all levels of sophistication, as in the banking industry, the potential for misunderstanding and financial loss demands that everyone describe them accurately and in accessible language. Precise, accessible language should form the basis of the mutually-beneficial relationships to which banks and their customers aspire. A com-mon language of representing and understanding banking terms enables eve-ryone to think clearly and critically about services, offerings, and transac-tions. The greatest appeal of The Banking Companion lies in its straightforward definition and presentation of entries. Its 5,000 entries cover words and phrases that constitute the banking vocabulary - from the academic to the practical, and from the formal to the colloquial. There will also be practical example sentences which further illustrate meanings of the entries. SummaryThe Banking Companion features simple, clear English with headwords and phrases drawn from international sources. It can serve the reference needs of undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals requiring assistance, and its explanations about searching and cross-referencing can assist readers worldwide. I researched entries extensively in the banking literature while working on this project. Needless to say, I equally tapped my banking research, writing, training and consulting experience spanning over a quarter of a century. Specifically, The Banking Companion can: * illuminate words and phrases describing financial services, transactions, requests, and relationships * clarify usage by citing examples both technical and non-technical* help readers evaluate banking services, offerings, and transactions, espe-cially as some words and phrases have gain or loss implication in partic-ular banking situations * enable readers to understand, assess, and participate in bank-provided financial services. The Banking Companion thereby directly facilitates the mutually-beneficial banking relationships to which banks and their customers aspire. Audience The Banking Companion serves the reference needs of students, researchers, professionals, and everyone who has anything to do with banking, banks, or banking relationships. Selling Points * Explains each headword or phrase in at least two contexts* Indicates the areas of banking to which particular headwords or phrases apply* Illustrates meanings * Contains example sentences for each of the entries * Shows parts of speech to which the headwords and phrases are classified Competing TitlesThe competing titles somewhat are not strong banking reference texts. This is largely because, in addition to banking, they are also covering insurance, investments, accounting, and other financial subjects. That is the main hole in their coverage. In essence, the competing titles contain a potpourri of financial terms and entries - whereas, in practice, banks are usually isolated from non-bank financial institutions for purposes of industrial classification and regulation. Certainly such titles hardly offer in-depth definitions. Of course, it's unlikely to find an author who has altogether adequate expertise in all of those fields. There are subjects which The Banking Companion covers that the competing titles do not. Mine captures the dynamics of contemporary banking vocabulary and terminologies for every sphere. Readers will find that each headword, phrase and so on is related to particular banking function(s) in which it is predominantly used. Words and phrases have practitioner touch, academic angle and reflect real-life banking insights.

Barons of Banking highlights the contributions of six distinguished personalities from the world of banking—Sir Sorabji Pochkhanawala, Sir Purshotamdas Thakurdas, Sir Chintaman D. Deshmukh, A.D. Shroff, H.T. Parekh, and R.K. Talwar—who not only played a pioneering role in the growth of the institutions which they founded, or were actively associated with, but left an indelible mark on the banking industry as a whole. Through the narration of the history of five key institutions - the Central Bank of India; the Reserve Bank of India; the State Bank of India; the Industrial Credit and Investment Corporation of India Ltd; and the Housing Development and Finance Corporation Ltd—the author gives us a keen insight into the contributions of these luminaries to banking in India. Also included is a narration of the recommendations of important committees and commissions which influenced the course of Indian banking. Divided into four parts, the book uses hitherto unused archival material recently put in the public domain by the RBI. Of particular interest is a discussion of the acrimonious relationship between Sir James Grigg, the Finance Member of the Viceroy’s Executive Council and Sir Osborne Smith, the first Governor of the RBI, which throws fresh light on a spat which remains unprecedented not only in the bank’s history, but possibly in all of banking history. Meticulously researched and engagingly written, this book will be of interest to both the academic and general reader and, of course, to the professional banker interested in a selective peep into the history of his profession.
