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. This book brings together economists, all of whom are from outside the mainstream and who collectively represent the broadest range of views from across the entire spectrum of economic opinion, to examine what has been learnt from this experience. With the advent of this challenging new work, these alternative perspectives should now receive a far closer examination given the unmistakable economic failures endured over the past few years. Written in an accessible manner, this book will appeal to economists, economic policy-makers and students of economics and public policy who are trying to look at alternative ways of understanding why the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) occurred and what ought to have been the appropriate response. Anyone who is genuinely interested in the causes of the GFC, and why the policies that were adopted failed to bring about the recovery that was intended, will find this book a fascinating read.
