Manias, Panics, and Crashes
A History of Financial Crises
Manias, Panics, and Crashes, Fifth Edition is an engaging and entertaining account of the way that mismanagement of money and credit has led to financial explosions over the centuries. Covering such topics as the history and anatomy of crises, speculative manias, and the lender of last resort, this book puts the turbulence of the financial world in perspective. The updated fifth edition expands upon each chapter, and includes two new chapters focusing on significant financial crises of the last fifteen years.
The classic penned by Kindleberger, an economist and financial historian who died in 2003, receives a burnishing from Aliber, who has taught at the U. of Chicago since 1965. Their scholarly analysis describes how mismanagement of money and credit has led to financial explosions over the centuries. The latest edition adds two chapters on the real estate price bubble that occurred in Norway, Sweden and Finland at the end of the 1980s, and the three asset price bubbles that occurred between 1985 and 2000 in Japan and other Asian countries. The dot-com boom and bust also get their due. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
