This book was released on 2018-10-24 with total page 341 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The financial and economic crisis in Europe is not over, and the radically opposing strategies on how to proceed has only increased the complexity of problems in the region, revealing the shortcomings of the EU’s architecture. The European Union, perhaps for the first time in its history of more than seventy years, is being perceived as a threat to the financial and monetary stability of the world. A Global Perspective on the European Economic Crisis explores the connection between internal EU actions and institutions and the external factors that influence the ongoing response to the European crisis. With a unique collection of international and interdisciplinary essays, this book considers the complex macroeconomic and challenging political landscape of Europe, looking at how and why the European Union is untenable in its current state. The chapters outline what should be done to make the common currency area more resilient, and explain why external events are particularly problematic for the EU, ultimately offering suggestions for what Europeans should do in order to avoid harmful internal consequences. This volume confronts the causes of the crisis’ persistence, its economic and political consequences, and the impact of more recent events and policy decisions. It will be of interest to researchers and policy-makers keen to understand the EU relations and the influence of international organizations in the European economic crisis.
Download or read book Global Economic & Financial Crisis PDF or another Format written by and published by . This book was released on 2009-01-01 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A collapse in housing prices in the United States in the middle of 2007 led to a rise in defaults in loan repayments and then rapidly to major losses in financial institutions across the world. The financial crisis of 2007 and 2008 took little time to turn into the global economic crisis of 2008 and 2009, leaving no country and no sector untouched and has become the worst contraction since the Depression of the 1930s. The structure of financial innovation that drove growth for close to a quarter of a century has turned out to be a house of cards. Governments and central banks are now rethinking the organization and role of banks. The incentives given to executives of the financial institutions to promote profits at all costs have been put under scrutiny. This volume puts together a collection of essays on a number of aspects of the global economic and financial crisis that were first published in the Economic & Political Weekly in early 2009. Economists and policy makers from across the world cover six areas from a global and Indian perspective. One set of articles discusses the structural causes of the financial crisis. A second focuses on banking and offers solutions for the future. A third examines the role of the US dollar in the unfolding of the crisis. A fourth area of study is the impact on global income distribution. A fifth set of essays takes a long-term view of policy choices confronting the governments of the world. A separate section assesses the downturn in India, the state of the domestic financial sector, the impact on the informal economy and the reforms necessary to prevent another crisis. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in and concerned about the global economic and financial crisis.

Download or read book Moments of Truth PDF or another Format written by Francisco Panizza and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2013-11-07 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The current financial and sovereign debt crisis of the European Union and the United States can be regarded as the most recent of a wave of financial and sovereign debt crises that have affected different regions of the world over the past quarter century. While there is a large and growing body of literature on the economic aspects of financial crises, its political elements remain surprisingly under-studied. Moments of Truth: The Politics of Financial Crises in Comparative Perspective fills this gap in the literature by looking at the political repercussions and policy implications of financial crises in comparative perspective, using case studies in Latin America, Korea, and Russia, as well as the contemporary crises in the US and in key European countries. Contributors to this volume look at the crises as critical junctures that generate high levels of uncertainty while calling for decisive action. The chapters emphasize structural or agency based explanations and give relevance to the role of ideas, interests, and institutions in explaining different outcomes. The questions addressed by the case studies include: how the crises were defined by key actors, the range of political and policy options available to deal with their impact, the role of ideas in policy shifts, how political and economic actors redefine their interests in contexts of uncertainty, how political institutions mediate reactions to the crises, what explains the choice of a certain option over other alternatives, and whether the crisis has (so far) resulted in significant political and policy changes or in incremental adjustments to the status quo. The first book to comparatively analyze the political dimensions of financial crises across different global regions, Moments of Truth will be highly significant for any scholars interested in the contemporary debate on financial crises.

Download or read book Economic Crisis and Economic Thought PDF or another Format written by Tommaso Gabellini and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2019-01-23 with total page 482 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The ongoing economic crisis has revealed fundamental problems both in our economic system and the discipline which analyses it. This book presents a series of contrasting but complementary approaches in economic theory in order to offer a critical toolkit for examining the modern capitalist economy. The global economic crisis may have changed the world in which we live, but not the fundamental tenets of the discipline. This book is a critical assessment of the relation between economic theory and economic crises: how intellectual thinking impacts on real economic events and vice versa. It aims at challenging the conventional way in which economics is taught in universities and later adopted by public officials in the policymaking process. The contributions, all written by distinguished academics and researchers, offer a heterodox perspective on economic thinking and analysis. Each chapter is inspired by alternative theoretical approaches which have been mostly side-lined from current academic teaching programmes. A major suggestion of the book is that the recent economic crisis can be better understood by recovering such theoretical analyses and turning them into a useful framework for economic policymaking. Economic Crisis and Economic Thought is intended as a companion to economics students at the Master’s and PhD level, in order for them to confront issues related to the labour market, the financial sector, macroeconomics, industrial economics, etc. with an alternative and complementary perspective. It challenges the way in which economic theory is currently taught and offered via alternatives for the future.
Download or read book Financial Systems in Troubled Waters PDF or another Format written by Alessandro Carretta and published by . This book was released on 2012 with total page 369 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This collection considers the financial crisis from a managerial perspective, focussing on the business implications for the financial industry. Topics examined include governance, information needs and strategy of financial intermediaries and investors. The contributions build on the existing literature and present some unique insights on governance, credit quality evaluation and performance measurement. In a fast growing or steady market, it is possible for even an inefficient financial system to satisfy investors' and firms' needs. However, the current financial crisis has brought into sharp relief the limits of the inefficient practices adopted by the market, and made clear the importance of developing more effective governance mechanisms, more detailed and complete information databases and new strategies. The crisis has also brought to the fore issues about the governance of financial intermediaries that had not been previously addressed. These include board diversity, internal monitoring procedures and the existence of interlocking directorates. More broadly, the financial crisis has radically altered the international framework, with an increasingly consolidated financial sector, and the rise of new markets (such as China) that now play a predominant role in the worldwide market. Studies on the competition and on the performance in this new scenario are essential in order to understand the implications of recent events.

Download or read book Financial Innovation and Resilience PDF or another Format written by Lilia Costabile and published by Springer. This book was released on 2018-09-28 with total page 372 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As Ignazio Visco, Governor of the Bank of Italy, says in his Foreword, all economic policy makers today need to re-examine our history to help them confront the challenges of today. This edited volume focuses specifically on the theme of financial innovation and how financial resiliency was achieved in Naples. To highlight both the achievements of the public banks of Naples and their lessons for financial resiliency, the book focuses on financial crises and how they were overcome in Naples in contrast to other European financial systems. The first section focuses on the development of the public banks unique to Naples. The second section compares those with other banking systems and how they responded to the same shock in 1622, caused by the full mobilization of European belligerents to finance their efforts in the Thirty Years War. The next section compares lessons learned in the rest of Europe over the next century and a half. The final section comes back to original start of the narrative arc to suggest ways that today’s policymakers and thinkers could use the historical experience of the public banks of Naples to deal better with the ongoing problems stemming from the financial crisis of 2007-08.

This book was released on 2016-06-11 with total page 279 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This collection empirically and conceptually advances our understanding of the intricacies of emerging markets’ financial and macroeconomic development in the post-2008 crisis context. Covering a vast geography and a broad range of economic viewpoints, this study serves as an informed guide in the unchartered waters of fundamental uncertainty as it has been redefined in the post-crisis period. Contributors to the collection go beyond risks-opportunities analyses, looking deeper into the nuanced interpretations of data and economic categories as interplay of developing world characteristics in the context of redefined fundamental uncertainty. Those concerns relate to the issues of small country finance, the industrialization of the developing world, the role of commodity cycles in the global economy, sovereign debt, speculative financial flows and currency pressures, and connections between financial markets and real markets. Compact and comprehensive, this collection offers unique perspectives into contemporary issues of financial deepening and real macroeconomic development in small developing economies that rarely surface in the larger policy and development debates.
Download or read book Banks at Risk PDF or another Format written by Peter Hoflich and published by John Wiley & Sons. This book was released on 2012-11-28 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ideas on how to reform the financial services industry, from experts on the inside In the wake of the financial crisis of 2008 the practices of the entire global financial services industry have been called into question. From the government, to the media, to the general public, everyone is re-thinking the way forward for the financial sector, but the stakes are high. Should negative trends in the industry continue and financial innovations allow fallout from the next crisis to grow exponentially, the endgame could be the sort of mutually assured destruction that topples entire economies. Charting the way forward for financial services reform requires a fundamental reappraisal of how things are done in order to avert disaster in the near future, and Banks at Risk: Global Best Practices in an Age of Turbulence explores what the future holds, by talking to experts in the know. Compiling the insights of ten key figures in the financial services industry—regulators, commercial bankers, risk managers, and infrastructure specialists—who look at both strategic and operational issues in their assessments of how to clean up the industry and move towards a system of properly-managed risk, the book explores exactly what we need to do to prevent another crisis. Sharing their thoughts for the first time are Liu Mingkang, the Chairman of the China Banking Regulatory Commission; Eric Rosengren, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston; Joel Werkama, Assistant Vice President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston; Jane Diplock, former chairperson of the International Organization of Securities Commissions and the former head of New Zealand’s securities commission; Jose Maria Roldan, head of the banking supervision at the Bank of Spain; Jesus Saurina, Director of the Financial Stability Department at the Bank of Spain; Dick Kovacevich, former chairman and CEO of Wells Fargo Bank; Mike Smith, CEO of ANZ Group and former head of HSBC’s Asia Pacific operations; Shan Weijian, Chairman and CEO of Pacific Alliance Group and former senior partner of TPG Capital; Rob Close, former CEO of CLS Group; Tham Ming Soong, Chief Risk Officer at the United Overseas Bank in Singapore; and Tsuyoshi Oyama, former head of the risk assessment division in the international affairs division of the Bank of Japan. Takes a unique look at the problems with the financial services industry and what can be done to fix them Brings together ideas for reform from numerous internationally respected figures working in the industry, many of them writing about their solutions for the first time Offers a remarkable insight into how to build a more sustainable future Eminently thought provoking, Banks at Risk presents real solutions to reforming the financial services industry, from the men and women who know it best.
