Thematic seminar (online), May 10, 2022, at 3-5 pm
Organized by Jeppe Nevers & Julian Lamberty.
Alexander Nützenadel presents: ”Financial Intermediation in the Age of Neoliberalism: The Case of Deutsche Bank”.
Financialization is usually characterized as a central feature of the Neoliberal Age. Based on the case of the Deutsche Bank, this paper analyzes the role of banks and their impact on the evolution of global finance since the 1970s. It argues that international commercial banks radically changed their business model in order to maintain a leading role on financial markets. The paper also analyzes the increasing organizational risks that banks assumed in this process.
The webinar is organized by the programme together with the SDU Centre for Business History. Jeppe Nevers will be chair.
