The Rise and Fall of the City of Money: A Financial History of Edinburgh

Monday 7 October 2019

Ray Perman's new book tells the story of finance in Edinburgh from the Darien disaster of 1700, which drove Scotland into union with England but spawned the institutions which transformed Edinburgh into a global financial centre, to the crash of 2008, which wrecked the city's two largest and oldest banks⁠—and its reputation. In the three intervening centuries, Edinburgh became a hothouse of financial innovation, prudent banking, reliable insurance, and smart investing. The face of the city changed too as money transformed it from medieval squalor to Georgian elegance.
