'This book is a useful and comprehensive account of the Great Recession, its causes, consequences and policy responses.' David Hayward, RMIT University, Australia 'A masterful explanation of what went wrong that led to the GFC and what we can do about it. This book's special value is in how accessible it is - a splendid job of making clear that which is complex.' Ross Buckley, University of New South Wales, Australia '... the topics are addressed comprehensively, and presented in a well-ordered and thoughtful style. The language used in the book is very lucid. It provides a clear and concise information about the Global Financial Crisis which will assist all those who are not intimately familiar with the relevant events, but also discusses the more complex aspects of the crisis in significant detail for more demanding readers. Academics, students, business professionals and regulators alike will no doubt find this book extremely useful.' International Journal of Trade and Commerce 'The book makes excellent use of primary sources well referenced in footnotes and a separate bibliography at the end of the book...it is well balanced, detailed and comprehensive.'
