Bill Lucarelli provides detailed historical analyses of the causes of the current international financial crisis, and offers alternative heterodox theories with more coherent and rigorous theoretical frameworks than existing economic orthodoxies. He illustrates that the very assumptions of neoclassical theory - informed by the efficient markets hypothesis - tend to rule out the very possibility of endogenous financial crises. Consequently, he argues, the endogenous causes of these crises are either ignored or simply treated as random, extraneous historical events. In stark contrast to these neoclassical/monetarist views, this book seeks to explain the recurrence of these financial crises as a result of the inner workings of the capitalist system.
The Economics of Financial Turbulence will prove an invaluable contribution to modern heterodox theories of endogenous money, and as such will be essential reading for academics and students with an interest in economics, heterodox economics and money, finance and banking. Economic and financial policymakers will also find the book to be a fascinating read.
