The Age of Instability
The Global Financial Crisis and What Comes Next
The most comprehensive and lucid guide to what happened and why
About the book
Bored with endless grandstanding and people being wise after the event? Then The Age of Instability is the one book you should read on the financial crisis. Setting the near collapse of the international financial markets and banking system in a global and historical context, Sunday Times economics editor and bestselling author David Smith looks not only at the political and economic factors that contributed to the fall of Lehmans, collapse of Iceland and disintegration of the subprime mortgage market but also at the emergence of a culture of risk and greed that made it possible to believe that greed was good and the good times would last forever. It provides an authoritative yet accessible guide to what happened, where, and when with practical suggestions for what needs to happen next.
Precise and lucid
a guide through the treacherous and shifting landscape of the crisis with excellent credentials and a good eye for a telling quotation.
