Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Roselli’s book is essential reading for all who wish to understand the recent crisis and make reoccurrence less likely. It combines understanding of history with economic analysis and the experience and knowledge of a practicing central banker. This is political economy at its best - readable, well informed, and thoughtful." - Geoffrey Wood, Professor Emeritus of Economics, Cass Business School, UK and Professor Emeritus of Monetary Economics, University of Buckingham, UK
