We have just experienced the worst financial crash the world has seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s. While real economies in general did not crash as they did in the 1930s, the financial parts of the economy certainly did, or, at least, came very close to doing so. Hundreds of banks in the United States and Europe have been closed by their supervisory authorities, forcibly merged with stronger partners, nationalized or recapitalized with the tax payers' money. Banks and insurance companies had, by mid 2010, already written off some 2000 billion dollars in credit write-downs on loans and securities. In this book, Johan Lybeck draws on his experience as both an academic economist and a professional banker to present a detailed yet non-technical analysis of the crash. He describes how the crisis began in early 2007, explains why it happened and shows how it compares to earlier financial crises.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A detailed and careful account of what happened and why in the global financial crisis. Full of facts and astute observations, this is an invaluable reference for anyone seeking to avoid a repeat of that awful experience.' Simon Johnson, MIT Sloan School of Management, and co-author of 13 Bankers (2010)
'This is the full story of how the Western world's banks crashed in all its gory details. Drawing on his experience of dealing with the Nordic banking crash of the 1990s, Johan Lybeck is uniquely qualified to unravel the sequence of events that led from problems in the US mortgage market to the global banking collapse of 2008, and to offer his own view of the route back to prosperity. With its meticulous assembly of data from a wide range of sources, this book will be invaluable for any student of the crisis, whether academic or practitioner.' Laurence Copeland, Professor of Finance, Cardiff Business School
