In this new, updated sixth edition of his book, Aliber expands upon the ideas presented in the previous edition to bring the history of the financial crisis up-to-date. It now includes two new chapters that provide an in-depth analysis of the causes, consequences and policy responses to the first global crisis of the 21st century, the Financial Crisis of 2007-2008. In addition, these new chapters also cover significant crises of the last fifteen years. The author offers valuable lessons to successfully navigate the financial crises of today and ones that lie ahead.
