Descripción del libro usado "Biography of a bank"

This is the captivating story of the Bank of America, still one of the world''s largest banks, and the careers of the Gianninis, father and son. They began banking in San Francisco with the Bank of Italy which catered to small farmers, mostly of Italian descent. The father, Amadeo Peter Giannini, has been called the greatest innovator in modern banking. When the fire and earthquake of 1906 forced many bigger banks to close their doors, he set up two planks on a wharf and continued business. by 1930 those two planks had grown into the Bank of America, and the Giannini policy of developing local agriculture and commerce through a system of strong branch banks had become a new force in financial history. This engrossing book will especially appeal to economists, bankers, historians, and for each person fascinated by the growth of an idea into a major business.
