The emergence of imperial and colonial joint-stock banks in Britain and its imperial territories between 1800 and 1850 created new challenges of regulation for the British state. What should they look like, how should they be regulated, and whose interests should they serve? Using Jamaica as its main case study, this paper will look at how and why the modern system of global finance emerged out of the messy political, social and economic clashes of these decades.
