The literature on free banking is vast. This book presents an introduction to private sector banking (as opposed to central banking). Banks are at the very centre of the financial system. They act as intermediaries between all the four sectors of the economy) and all other financial intermediaries/5(35). This chapter provides an overview of the economic theory of banking, and a roadmap to the issues discussed in Part D of the book. It begins by considering what a bank Author: John Armour. Abstract.
