Fixing global finance by Martin Wolf( )

51 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in English and Portuguese and held by 2,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The latest book from Financial Times columnist Martin Wolf explains why global imbalances cause financial crises -- including the one ravaging the United States right now -- and outlines the steps for ending this destructive cycle. Reviewing global financial crises since 1980, Wolf lays bare the links between the microeconomics of finance and the macroeconomics of the balance of payments, demonstrating how the subprime lending crisis in the United States fits into a pattern that includes the economic shocks of 1997, 1998, and early 1999 in Latin America, Russia, and Asia. He explains why the United States is now the "borrower and spender of last resort," makes the case that this is an untenable arrangement, and argues that global economic security depends on the ability of emerging economies to develop robust financial systems based on domestic currencies. Sharply and clearly argued, Wolf's prescription for fixing global finance illustrates why he has been described as "the world's preeminent financial journalist."
Why globalization works by Martin Wolf( Book )

38 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The debate on globalization has reached a level of passionate intensity that inhibits rational discussion. In this book, one of the world's foremost economic commentators explains how globalization works and why it makes sense. Martin Wolf confronts the charges against globalization, delivers a devastating critique of each and outlines a more hopeful future."--Jacket
The shifts and the shocks : what we've learned -- and have still to learn -- from the financial crisis by Martin Wolf( Book )

46 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book identifies the origin of the crisis in the complex interaction between globalization, hugely destabilizing global imbalances and our dangerously fragile financial system. In the eurozone, these sources of instability were multiplied by the tragically defective architecture of the monetary union. It also shows how much of the orthodoxy that shaped monetary and financial policy before the crisis occurred was complacent and wrong. In doing so, it mercilessly reveals the failures of the financial, political and intellectual elites who ran the system. The book also examines what has been done to reform the financial and monetary systems since the worst of the crisis passed. "Are we now on a sustainable course?" Wolf asks. "The answer is no." He explains with great clarity why "further crises seem certain" and why the management of the eurozone in particular "guarantees a huge political crisis at some point in the future." Wolf provides far more ambitious and comprehensive plans for reform than any currently being implemented"--
Stagflation, savings, and the state : perspectives on the global economy( Book )

10 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 1984, as this introduction is being written, the world economy seems to be recovering from the deepest global recession in fifty years. Will the recovery be sustained? Can there be a renewed period of relatively stable and steady growth such as characterized the first two postwar decades, which are already wistfully being called a golden age? How can the world economy be made to recover its elan? Part one of World Development Report 1984 attempted to answer these questions by considering the underlying causes of the stagflationary crisis that has beset the industrial countries since the first oil shock and was transmitted in the late 1970s to the developing countries. The latter weathered the first emanation of this crisis fairly well after the 1973 oil price shock. Many middle-income oil importers were able to cope by means of countercyclical borrowing on international financial markets awash with newfound liquidity based on the financial surpluses of the oil producers. This commercial borrowing represented the reopening of international financial markets to developing countries after their defaults in the 1930s. This borrowing, however, has come to haunt many of the developing countries, as well as the international financial system, in the form of a global 'debt crisis.' The present book contains a set of background papers prepared for part one of World Development Report 1984. Chapter eight, by Lal and Wolf, more fully states the arguments advanced in the report. The rest of the background papers analytically and empirically validate these arguments. Each paper is relatively self-contained, although in content the chapters inevitably overlap somewhat

The shifts and the shocks : what we've learned--and have still to learn--from the financial crisis by Martin Wolf( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the chief economic commentator for the Financial Times, a brilliant tour d'horizon of the new global economy and its trajectory. There have been many books that have sought to explain the causes and courses of the financial and economic crisis which began in 2007-8. The Shifts and the Shocks is not another detailed history of the crisis, but the most persuasive and complete account yet published of what the crisis should teach us about modern economies and economics. The book identifies the origin of the crisis in the complex interaction between globalization, hugely destabilizing global imbalances and our dangerously fragile financial system. In the eurozone, these sources of instability were multiplied by the tragically defective architecture of the monetary union. It also shows how much of the orthodoxy that shaped monetary and financial policy before the crisis occurred was complacent and wrong. In doing so, it mercilessly reveals the failures of the financial, political and intellectual elites who ran the system. The book also examines what has been done to reform the financial and monetary systems since the worst of the crisis passed. "Are we now on a sustainable course?" Wolf asks. "The answer is no." He explains with great clarity why "further crises seem certain" and why the management of the eurozone in particular "guarantees a huge political crisis at some point in the future." Wolf provides far more ambitious and comprehensive plans for reform than any currently being implemented. Written with all the intellectual command and trenchant judgment that have made Martin Wolf one of the world's most influential economic commentators, The Shifts and the Shocks matches impressive analysis with no-holds-barred criticism and persuasive prescription for a more stable future. It is a book no one with an interest in global affairs will want to neglect
