Tom Petersson has written the chapter "Adapting to a changing world. Swedish savings banks in the 21st century" in the recently published book "Social Aims of Finance. Rediscovering varieties of credit in financial archives"

It includes a variety of studies, from Italian Monte di Pietà in the Middle Ages to the recent advent of contemporary impact financing, from rural moneylenders in Western India to the mutualism of French agricultural credit, from the Swedish savings banks and the British building societies to the German and Dutch Raiffeisen banks, from Rothschild philanthropy to the public economic and social aspects of the Italian banking system, from the Spanish bank archives to those in Canada and South Africa.
