By Jérôme Creel, Fabien Labondance, Sandrine Levasseur, Mimoza Shabani, Jan Toporowski, Judith Tys, Constanza Consolandi, Giampaolo Gabbi, Massimo Matthias, Pietro Vozella, Carlos A. Carrasco, Patricia Peinado, Carlos Rodríguez González.

This issue of Intereconomics aims to systematically describe and analyse the evolution of national financial systems within the EU over the past three decades. It analyses the processes of financialisation that have dominated this period as well as the causes and consequences of the financial crisis from the perspectives of five individual member states – Germany, France, the UK, Italy and Spain. Furthermore, policy proposals which could change the role of the financial system to better serve economic and social objectives are put forward.
