James R. Barth, Lowder Eminent Scholar in Finance, and George G. Kaufman have edited a new book, “The First Great Financial Crisis of the 21st Century: A Retrospective, World Scientific Publishing Co.” It provides a more thorough assessment now that the worst events and the regulatory reforms are sufficiently behind us and much more information about these developments are available. It reviews and analyzes the causes and consequences of and the regulatory responses to the Great Financial Crisis, particularly from a public policy viewpoint. In the process, it explores questions such as: What caused the crisis? How did the crisis differ across countries? What is the outlook for another crisis, and when? This is the 18th book that Barth has published while at Auburn University.
