About
The Book
The most persuasive and complete account yet of the 2007-10 crisis and the lessons it holds for us. It matches impressive analysis with no-holds-barred criticism and persuasive prescription for a more stable future. A book no one with an interest in global affairs will want to neglect.

The best all-round account of the global financial crisis and what we should do to reduce the chances of a repetition.

  • Anat Admati

    Wolf offers an insightful and brutal analysis of the broad political and economic forces that have shaped the global economy in recent years, particularly in Europe.

  • Glenn Hubbard

    Wolf’s book sets the crisis in the context of structural problems that set the stage for the crisis, many of which have not been mitigated (indeed some amplified) by policy hyperactivity in the wake of the crisis. While not all of the diagnoses and future policy suggestions ring true, this book will stand the test of time as an introduction to the complexity of problems that presaged the crisis.
