"A compelling, wide-ranging analysis of the many facets of the financial crisis—its causes, its effect globally and regionally, and likely global scenarios for how it may develop further." —Kenneth P. Thomas, University of Missouri– St. Louis

DESCRIPTION

Have the financial crisis of 2008 and the subsequent recession rearranged the basic structures of the global economy?

To answer that fundamental question, the authors of Exploring the Global Financial Crisis tackle a number of related questions: What has happened, for example, to global flows of people, goods, and capital? Will the euro and the dollar persist as global currencies? Can governments that bailed out failing banks by vastly expanding public debt manage to regain solvency, and at what political cost? Ranging across regions, and from the factors that gave birth to the crisis to current politico-economic rivalries, the authors present both mainstream and critical views on the central issues involved.
