Preventing Financial Crises: A Vital Yet Frequently Overlooked Aspect of Minsky's Economics
Journal of Economic Issues, 2021, vol. 55, issue 1, 203-224
Periods of financial instability are always an opportunity for Hyman P. Minsky to return to the spotlight. Often, they result in an increase in the number of references made to Minsky's work, otherwise relegated to the margins of academic debate. For the most part, this work involving Minsky is limited to demonstrating the relevance of the Financial Instability Hypothesis in explaining the mechanisms of financial fragility or the need to implement countercyclical measures during the acute phase of the crisis. In my view, such a use of Minsky's work is incomplete because it fails to take into account an equally important aspect of it: that which relates to the prevention of financial crises.
