Financial Stability and Growth: Perspectives on Financial Regulation and New Developmentalism

Luiz Carlos Bresser-Pereira, Jan Kregel and Leonardo Burlamaqui, eds.

London: Routledge, 2014.


The 2008 global financial crisis took the world by surprise, not least because politicians, businessmen and economists believed that they had learned crucial lessons from the Great Depression of the 1930s. As a direct result of deregulated financial markets, financial crises occurred in both developed and developing economies. However, this volume argues that in the most recent crisis developing countries suffered less, and that financial policy and regulation played a crucial part in this.
