Learning From the Global Financial Crisis

Stanford University Press

This chapter presents a critique of the comparison of financial and technological crises. It explores the ultracomplexity of some trading businesses, such as debt securitization and derivatives. These have evolved in complexity beyond the understanding of risk managers and bank chief executive officers. This chapter suggests that introducing transparency into the balance sheets of investment banks can lead to a more optimal capital structure that is better equipped to handle financial market meltdowns.

Keywords:   financial crisis, technological crisis, debt securitization, investment banks, transparency, financial market meltdowns
