After the Financial Crisis
Edited by Sylvester Eijffinger and Donato Masciandaro
Edited by Charles J. Whalen
This timely book rethinks economic theory and policy by addressing the problem of economic instability and the need to secure broadly shared prosperity. It stresses that advancing economics in the wake of the Great Recession requires an evolutionary standpoint, greater attention to uncertainty and expectations, and the integration of finance into macroeconomics. The result is a broader array of policy options – and challenges – than conventional economics presents.
Asia’s International Trading and Finance Centres
Edited by François Gipouloux
Asia’s trading and financial hubs have become global cities which frequently have more in common and closer linkages with each other than with their corresponding hinterlands. As this book expounds, these global cities illustrate to what extent world trends deeply penetrate and permeate the national territorial interiors and processes that were otherwise presumed to be controlled by the State.
Catching-up Strategies in CESEE Economies
Edited by Ewald Nowotny, Peter Mooslechner and Doris Ritzberger-Grünwald
Against the backdrop of the financial crisis that unfolded in 2008, this book deals with policy challenges going forward, focusing in particular on the ongoing catching-up process in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern European countries.
What Have We Learnt?
Edited by Steven Kates
The Global Financial Crisis is a unique investigation into the causes of the most savage economic downturn experienced since the Great Depression. Employing wide and divergent perspectives – which are themselves critically examined – this study analyses the measures that have been taken to restore our economies to acceptable rates of unemployment and growth.
Stock Markets, FDI and Challenges of Sustainability
Edited by Lilai Xu
The book explores the implications of both the extension of the market into key parts of the Chinese economy and the integration of China into the global economy. The main focus of the book is on the role and nature of China’s financial system and its ability to transform enterprise and household behaviour and the performance of investment finance, notably in the context of a two-way flow of foreign direct investment. All the extensive chapters highlight the issue of sustainability – some see the incompleteness of market reform as a problem; others are more willing to accept a pragmatic blending of the operation of the free market and government intervention.
Origins, Evolution and the Future
This illuminating and thought-provoking book questions whether classical Islamic capitalism, which has served Muslims so well for centuries, can provide a viable alternative world economic system. In the current recession – the worst since 1929 – this is surely a provocative question. But if Islamic capitalism is to emerge as a viable alternative, its nature and systems must be well understood.
A Global Multidisciplinary Perspective
Edited by Peter A.G. van Bergeijk, Arjan de Haan and Rolph van der Hoeven
The Financial Crisis and Developing Countries discusses and analyses regional and country specific impacts of the financial crisis in emerging markets and developing countries, covering all continents. Using heterodox and mainstream methodologies, the book develops a multidisciplinary perspective on the crisis phenomenon as it examines how the crisis changes concepts of development, critically discusses the mainstream approach, analyses (global) governance issues (including the G20) and shows the actual impact for the poor and crisis vulnerable.
Edited by Christopher J. Green, Eric J. Pentecost and Tom Weyman-Jones
The 2007–08 financial crisis has posed substantial challenges for bankers, economists and regulators: was it preventable, and how can such crises be avoided in future? This book addresses these questions. The Financial Crisis and the Regulation of Finance includes a comprehensive overview of the crisis and reviews the theory and practise of regulation in the UK and worldwide. The contributors – all international experts on financial markets and regulation – provide perspectives and analysis on macro-prudential regulation, the regulation of financial firms, and the role of shareholders and disclosure.
