Economics at your fingertips  

The First Great Recession of the 21st Century

Edited by Óscar Dejuán, Eladio Febrero and Maria Cristina Marcuzzo ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: The 2008–10 financial crisis and the global recession it created is a complex phenomenon that warrants detailed examination. The various essays in this book utilise several alternative paradigms to provide a plausible explanation and a credible cure. Great detail is given to this important analysis from different theoretical perspectives, presenting a clearer understanding of what went wrong and expounding misinterpretations of current theories and practices.
