8 Interesting Journal Articles on Financial Crisis

♠ Posted by Emmanuel in at 1/09/2009 06:51:00 AM
Our friends at Palgrave-Macmillan, one of the most established academic publishers, have sent me a note about eight journal articles that they have liberated from the subscription firewall bearing on the current financial crisis. They all look interesting as many of the authors and publications should be familiar to those dabbling in this subject matter. Off the cuff, I am interested in Lars Jonung's article as to how the Scandinavian banking cleanup was effected given that many American commentators see parallels between it and remedying the US mess. Leonard Seabrooke's "Varieties of Residential Capitalism!" [!] also looks provocative. I've met Len Seabrooke and while we don't share similar perspectives, he's an awfully nice fellow with many interesting viewpoints. Regardless, there are few doubts that housing constitutes a major political-economic realm in any number of countries. Happy reading...
