Complexity and Crisis in the Financial System: Critical Perspectives on the Evolution of American and British Banking

Matthew Hollow, Folarin Akinbami, Ranald Michie

Research output: Book/ReportBook


With contributions from across the disciplines of law, history, finance, and economics, Complexity and Crisis in the Financial System offers a truly interdisciplinary study of the relationship(s) between crises and complexity in the US and UK financial markets. Taken together, the contributions in this volume not only challenge many often taken-for-granted ideas about the nature of financial crises, but also broaden our understanding of the long-term causes (and consequences) of the global financial crisis of 2007–2008.
