Banks in the Caribbean: from Colonial times to the present.
The purpose of this session in CLADHE is to enable the discussion and a comparative approach to the banking systems that developed in the Caribbean region during XIXth and XXth Century, identifying specific aspects, local and national, in the process of formation of the systems of individual countries of the region. The symposium covers research on the foreign commercial banks operating in the area, as well as local banks created for financing agricultural exports and those chartered by colonial governments as issuing banks. Of particular interest is the study the different ways in which European countries organized credit and money supply in their colonial dependencies.
