By Susanne Trimbath
Much has been written and spoken about the lessons learned from the financial crisis of 2009. This book deals with the lessons not learned beforethe financial crisis.
Dr Trimbath demonstrates that an existing framework for regulating financial systems, available since at least 2001, could have prevented the systemic failure in the US that led to the collapse of global credit markets in 2008. Step by step the book guides you through what could have been done to prevent the crisis and what investors can do to protect themselves from the next one, and concludes with a key idea for making financial services businesses stand out from the crowd ensuring future success.
The list of 10 Steps is quite straight-forward and simple.
For each step the reader will find: the legislative and regulatory background on the existing rules; a review of academic research on the theory behind each step; and the facts and data connecting each step to the financial crisis of 2008.
