About this product
- DescriptionIn The Global Financial Crisis, contributors argue that the complexity of the Global Financial Crisis challenges researchers to offer more comprehensive explanations by extending the scope and range of their traditional investigations. To achieve this, the volume views the financial crisis simultaneously through three different lenses--ecomic, psychological, and social values. Contributors offer a constructive methodology suitable for exploring financial crises. They recognize how current ecomic analysis did t prepare academic ecomists, business ecomists, traders, and regulators to anticipate ecomic and financial crises. So, they search more extensively within the broader discipline of ecomics for ideas related to crises but neglected perhaps because they were t mathematically rigorous. They affirm that the complexity of financial crises necessitates complementary research. Thus, to put the focal purpose of this book differently, they explore the Global Financial Crisis from three interconnected frameworks: the standards of orthodox ecomic analysis, Minskyan ecomics, and the role of ideas and values in ecomics. Values are the subject of both philosophy and psychology and can contribute to a better understanding of the Global Financial Crisis. Values, in general, have been relatively neglected by ecomists. This is t because there is doubt about their significance, but rather because welfare ecomics and collective choice still operate within the neoclassical paradigm. This volume argues that analyzing the value implications requires moving from the neoclassical framework to something that is broader and multidisciplinary.
