Summary

How does a venerable institution adapt quickly to sometimes volatile global markets and shifting domestic demands of the late twentieth century?
		 
In A History of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Volume 5 1973–1999, the story of CIBC unfolds amidst a backdrop of world-changing events, economic booms and busts, and memorable moments in Canadian history. This era of the bank saw challenges such as the OPEC crisis and recession-driven collapses of iconic companies like Massey Ferguson, Dome Petroleum, and Olympia & York. CIBC weathered such storms, while also pursuing opportunities in international banking and corporate acquisitions, and embracing technology and education. The lessons of the past shine through in this long-view of how to remain competitive and continue to evolve to meet the needs of millions of clients. All the while, the bank’s commitment to its communities is clearly evident in the passionate and generous spirit of CIBC’s team members, and its corporate support as one of the leading donors in the nation.
		 
At the heart of all the historical highs and lows are the people of CIBC, here profiled from the executives responsible for the bottom line to those working on the front lines, serving bank clients day in and day out. A History of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce brings to life the strategic changes that have propelled CIBC forward as it creates enduring value for its stakeholders.

    Its arguments would go on to shape global economics and influence world leaders in the late twentieth century, but Capitalism and Freedom was largely ignored when it was first published in 1962.
    
    The first work written for the general public by American economist Milton Friedman, the book argues that a free market with little government interference is the best way to run society. Its ideas were considered to be on the fringes of the economic debate at first, but Capitalism and Freedom introduced a fresh challenge to the dominance of the economic ideas put forward by the Englishman John Maynard Keynes. Its theories spurred Friedman’s rise to fame and paved the way for the influential body of work that followed.
    
    Capitalism and Freedom also inspired Friedman’s highly successful book and television series Free to Choose (1980). These both helped to popularize free-market thinking and made Friedman a household name.
