Description
‘An essential reference work for both scholars and practitioners concerned with financial crises. Roubini and Uzan have collected from around the world – from reports, conferences and professional journals alike – the key theoretical and applied work on the crisis problem. The result is hefty and therefore worth the price.’
– Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley, US

This unique collection of seminal articles reflects on the evolution of international finance in the 1990s, exploring the recurrence of financial crises and the resultant policy responses. The editors have brought together groundbreaking academic research addressing the policy decisions made by the key players. In this way, New International Financial Architecture sheds new light on the important debate of the 1990s which started with the Mexican crisis. This authoritative two volume set will provide a great resource for academics, policymakers and private sector participants.

Contents
