    An Overview of Financial Crises around the World provides students with a sample of articles that analyze different episodes of financial crisis both in the United States and in other countries and regions of the world. Students learn the principal causes, consequences, and policy responses that emerge as a result of financial crises and build an understanding of the similarities of occurrences across nations.

    The articles within this volume are organized into four parts. In Part I, students are provided with an overview of financial crises theory. Part II explores two great crises, the Great Depression in the United States and the Asian financial crisis of the 1990s. In the third part, students examine country-specific crises, including Bolivia and its experiences with inflation, Iceland’s banking crisis, Mexico’s trade issues and fiscal reform, and crises that befell Thailand and Argentina. The text closes with a section dedicated to explaining the causes and consequences of the 2007 – 2009 financial crisis in the United States.

    Emphasizing the commonalities in financial crises on a global scale, An Overview of Financial Crises around the World is an ideal textbook for undergraduate courses in economics and finance.
