Ten years after the outbreak of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) it is time to pause and reflect about an event whose consequences still have a major impact on financial markets and people’s daily lives. In his book “Crashed: How a decade of financial crisis changed the world,” UK economist and Columbia University professor Adam Tooze challenges the way the GFC has been storified, points at some risks that could be 2008-like, and sheds light over the political consequences of the crash, including Brexit and US president Trump. To enter a draw to win a copy of the book, leave a comment here.
