Summary

Explores the Origin of the Recent Banking Crisis and how to Preclude Future Crises

Shedding new light on the recent worldwide banking debacle, The Banking Crisis Handbook presents possible remedies as to what should have been done prior, during, and after the crisis. With contributions from well-known academics and professionals, the book contains exclusive, new research that will undoubtedly assist bank executives, risk management departments, and other financial professionals to attain a clear picture of the banking crisis and prevent future banking collapses.

The first part of the book explains how the crisis originated. It discusses the role of subprime mortgages, shadow banks, ineffective risk management, poor financial regulations, and hedge funds in causing the collapse of financial systems. The second section examines how the crisis affected the global market as well as individual countries and regions, such as Asia and Greece. In the final part, the book explores short- and long-term solutions, including government intervention, financial regulations, efficient bank default risk approaches, and methods to evaluate credit risk. It also looks at when government intervention in financial markets can be ethically justified.
