Editorial Reviews

“In the first great financial crisis of the 21st century, when markets stalled, policies surged. This volume crisply lays out responses to the crisis in the U.S. and elsewhere. But it does much more. It also shows how, before the crisis, while markets sprinted ahead, policies observed. And, therein it signals how widely and deeply blame will come to be apportioned. The crisply written chapters  give a tour of how different sectors and different countries got into, and through, the most perilous episode in our economic and financial lives.”  --James A. Wilcox, UC Berkeley"...artfully exposes the diverse roots of the crisis and explains how and why US and EU regulators failed to stop its spread."  --Edward J. Kane, Professor of Finance at Boston College“A valuable addition to the literature on financial crises…highly recommended.” --Choice
