With their far-ranging discussion of equity and combustion, the authors manage a comprehensive history of crisis and deliver long-range recommendations to curtail the cultural amnesia that allows the same mistakes to recur in the economic and government oversight sectors.
Written in the shadow of the financial crash, sociologist David Graeber gives a totally unprecedented history of debt and finds that it not only precedes the invention of money, it has also played an insidious role in agrarian societies and revolutions throughout history.
Debt is an astonishing and unique work of nonfiction, weaving together narratives of religious awakening, the rise of empires, and financial calamity. A contemporary novel that draws inspiration from the dysfunction of the banks, Union Atlantic by Adam Haslett depicts a Massachusetts rivalry between a retired history professor and banking magnate named Doug Fanning. A character-driven debut that memorably depicts the crisis, Union Atlantic examines the power dynamics and historical blindness that made it possible.

That might overstate the case for this book a little but they have made a stab at pulling away from the day-to-day narratives of their earlier work to offer calmer judgments, now that the dust has settled and we can see the longer-term impact of the decisions they made in haste.
The style is a little curious at times. There is also some routine praise for the two presidents they worked with, George W Bush and Barack Obama, and a reprise of their frustration with people who did not see the world their way and obstructed their solutions, such as Sheila Bair of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation FDIC and various pesky members of congress. The main interest lies not so much in the narrative chapters, which cover the same ground as their earlier books, as in their policy recommendations for the future.
It is noteworthy that they have been able to reach consensus on quite a radical programme. Three proposals in particular should cause policymakers in the US and elsewhere to think hard. First, Bernanke, Geithner and Paulson point out that imposing higher capital requirements on banks caused much credit creation to migrate to the non-bank sector, where US authorities still lack authority to intervene, whether preventively, by requiring higher capital reserves, or by providing financial support to stabilise markets if necessary.
They argue for an FDIC-style insurance model for the broader financial system. Quite how that would work is left unclear but the idea is worth further thought. Second, they note that the US system of financial regulation has barely been reformed, despite the many weaknesses revealed by the crisis.
They tried to promote change but only one small agency, the ineffective Office of Thrift Supervision, has been abolished. That is a damning commentary on the Financial Stability Oversight Council, which was supposed to fulfil that function. No other country has separate regulators for cash equities on the one hand and derivatives on the other.
Only defensive congressional fiefdoms prevent rational reform in that area. The third proposal is targeted principally at the Trump administration, though Congress is again also implicated. Bernanke, Geithner and Paulson believe that current US fiscal policy is deeply misguided. The deficit is too high, at a time when the economy is growing healthily.
That is bad economics today and, more important, the authorities could as a result find it difficult to relax fiscal policy to combat a future recession. With hindsight, was the euro a good idea? Will it come through the present crisis intact or will any country decide to leave?
