The failure of Wall Street : how and why Wall Street fails--and what can be done about it by Erik Banks( Book )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 429 libraries worldwide
"The Failure of Wall Street analyzes how and why Wall Street fails, and what can be done to rectify the failures. After a short discussion of Wall Street's role in raising capital, granting corporate and personal advice, managing risk, and acting as a trusted fiduciary financial analyst, Erik Banks explores the dramatic failures that have occurred in each of theses areas, using case studies and examples to illustrate the nature and extent of the problems. Next, he demonstrates why Wall Street fails in each area of supposed "expertise," focusing on shortcomings in governance, management, skills/controls, and transparency. Finally, Banks proposes a framework for addressing the shortfalls that continue to plague Wall Street. He argues that these solutions, while not necessarily quick, easy, or cheap to implement, can help make Wall Street become the sound, consistent, and efficient financial expert it is meant to be."--Jacket

See no evil : uncovering the truth behind the financial crisis by Erik Banks( Book )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 199 libraries worldwide
The story of the recent global economic crisis is told in the words of the main players in the drama. Including quotes from bankers, rating agencies, housing agencies, regulators, politicians and media figures. Erik Banks' latest book shows why we are doomed to experience further financial crises in the future. We are doomed to experience further financial crises in the future, because money is powerful, bankers clever, political will malleable, and memories short. So argues Erik Banks in this brilliant book, which tells the story of the recent global economic crisis in the words of the main players in the drama. Banks shows how few bankers, regulators and politicians saw the crisis coming, and how they believed its effects would be containable when it began. When realization kicked in, they all began to compensate by talking loudly and designing populist knee-jerk measures which seemed only to deal with the specifics of preventing another crisis exactly like that which had already occurred. The form of future crises was barely thought about. Banks's reconstruction of the crisis, and the demonstration that so few substantive lessons have been learnt, is essential reading for anyone interested in our current predicament

In an age where companies and financial institutions are keenly focusing on managing the financial risk of their operations, the implementation of quantitative methods and models has been of tremendous help, allowing firms to analyze and manage their risk more efficiently and effectively. However, the focus on quantitative risk management, while important, can sometimes be over-emphasized at the expense of judgement, logic and experience. Market dislocations of the 1990's have revealed the shortcomings of purely quantitative approaches to risk management and the need for a strong grounding i

Risk culture : a practical guide to building and strengthening the fabric of risk management by Erik Banks( Book )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 120 libraries worldwide
Risk, or the uncertainty regarding a future event or outcome, characterizes much of what banks, industrial corporations, and governmental agencies must deal with on a daily basis. Failure to recognize, quantify and manage risk can lead to significant problems. The very fact that risk exists and has the potential to create negative results means that it has to be actively managed. And, while the quantitative models and governance frameworks used to manage risks are by now well established, the behavioral aspects, centered on the concept of risk culture, are often unclear and under-theorized. Risk culture, which can be defined as an internal sensibility that reflects knowledge of, and respect for risk, represents a new frontier in the evolving field of risk management. Risk Culture is a practical volume devoted to the qualitative aspects of risk management, including those that should be firmly embedded in the corporate culture. Through descriptions, examples and case studies, the book analyzes weak and strong cultures and proposes a series of structural and behavioral actions that can lead to the strengthening of a company's culture. In a 21st century business world characterized by volatility and uncertainty, a strong risk culture is a prerequisite to success; Risk Culture is designed to help financial, corporate and governmental institutions address this increasingly critical topic
