This is a discerning analysis of international harmonisation efforts for secured credit law and examines the role of globalisation and finance capital in shaping such efforts.
Gerard McCormack reveals how an 'efficient' law is often seen to increase the availability, and lower the cost, of credit, thereby contributing to international development. He considers whether the most comprehensive international standard - the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Legislative Guide (2008) - is actually suitable for adoption at the national level.
In particular, he examines the hypothesis that American law and lawyers have shaped the content of the Guide to the extent that it is not suitable for translation into other laws. This book will be of great interest to practitioners, policymakers and academics, as well as students, particularly postgraduate students, of law and business throughout the world.
