SPS Departmental Seminar Series

Abstract: France, Germany and the UK have regulated their Too-Big-To-Fail banks in very different ways after the 2008 crisis. After several decades of financial globalization, and despite the setting of international and European banking standards, states have retained and implemented divergent priorities towards finance. Why? Building on a comparative analysis of twelve typical policy-making processes in the three countries, my book manuscript shows that while the encompassing institutions that characterized post-war models of capitalism have been disrupted, other typical and not least crucial institutions remain. These institutions systematically determine how actors’ preferences are shaped and which actors occupy key positions in policymaking processes, a routine situation which leads to predictable and typical policy outcomes in the domain of finance. This research also shows that policies implemented at the national level have significantly transformed the business models of global banks - thus leading to divergent distributive and functional consequences in each political economy.
