US Power and the International Bond Market: Financial Flows and the Construction of Risk Value

  • Chapter

Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)

Abstract

The disciplinary rigidities that continue to separate the study of politics from the study of economics still stand in the way of a deeper understanding of the matrices and operation of post-Second World War global power. The crucial role of global bond markets in particular cannot be meaningfully understood without taking into account both power and product formation in financial markets.1 This chapter attempts to pull disparate disciplinary threads together and comment on the dynamics of contemporary imperialism by tracing the post-Second World War history of the international bond market.
