La Fabrique juridique des swaps
Quand le droit organise la financiarisation du monde
The legal construction of swaps
When law organizes the financialization of the world

Bankers were of course responsible for the development of this financial innovation, but so were legal scholars. This book reveals the legal aspect of financial globalization, which is both frequently overlooked and fundamentally crucial.
