Understanding the basics of (securities-based) financial systems. Daniela Gabor, UWE Bristol.

The claim is that capital markets can provide new solutions to age-old development challenges (homelessness, access to education, clean water, crime prevention and helping disadvantaged children). Securities markets connect institutional investors that care about social/environmental impact with those in need of support. The aim is that ‘building movements of belief’ through institutional investment can achieve development goals. This short paper asks what is at stake in this new systematic attempt to re-engineer domestic financial systems. It suggests that securities-market based finance is a Trojan horse for financial globalisation.
