From Fragmentation to Financial Integration in Europe

edited by Charles Enoch, Luc Everaert, Thierry Tressel, and Jianping Zhou

“This book documents the tension between nationalistic fragmentation on the one hand and moves towards EU-wide solutions on the other, not least in the difficult on-going discussions on a Single Resolution Mechanism and banking union. The careful assessment in this book clearly reveals what a difficult exercise the achievement of a well-functioning European financial system has become.”

—Charles A. Goodhart—Professor Emeritus of Banking and Finance, London School of Economics

Financial Crises: Causes, Consequences, and Policy Responses

edited by Stijn Claessens, M. Ayhan Kose, Luc Laeven, and Fabian Valencia

“Financial Crises are the central economic concern of our time. In well-written chapters, Financial Crises: Causes, Consequences, and Policy Responses covers every aspect of them: their characteristics; how they should be managed; their short-term effects; their long-term effects; how to avoid them in the first place; and, especially how to restructure those overhanging debts. This volume superlatively encapsulates the work of many of the world’s greatest experts on this topic of all topics.”
