Abstract or Description

Public relations in financial markets came into its own after many Western economies liberalised during the 1980s. Public relations became an important means of building credibility in and shaping attitudes toward financial markets. This chapter explores PR activity throughout the world of finance - from wholesale finance (the 'factory floor') to retail finance (the 'shop window'). The chapter examines critiques of PR activity in both areas.
