The final chapter draws the conclusions from European financial integration and puts the major achievements and failures into the context of the evolution of finance-led capitalism and financial globalization. Summarizing the main arguments of the book and reflecting on the major challenges the chapter calls for a more interventionist financial integration policy and an alternative financial integration based on the lessons from financial regulation and financial crises.
