Description:

Over the last few years, the financial sector has experienced its worst crisis sincethe 1930s. The collapse of major firms, the decline in asset values, the interruption of creditflows, the loss of confidence in firms and credit market instruments, the intervention bygovernments and central banks: all were extraordinary in scale and scope. In this book, leadingeconomists Randall Kroszner and Robert Shiller discuss what the United States should do to preventanother such financial meltdown. Their discussion goes beyond the nuts and bolts of legislative andregulatory fixes to consider fundamental changes in our financial arrangements.Kroszner and Shiller offer two distinctive approaches to financial reform, withKroszner providing a systematic analysis of regulatory gaps and Shiller addressing the broaderconcerns of democratizing and humanizing finance. After brief discussions by four commentatorsBenjamin M. Friedman, George G. Kaufman, Robert C. Pozen, and Hal S. Scott), Kroszner and Shillereach offer a response to the other's proposals, creating a fruitful dialogue between two majorfigures in the field.
