Ihre Aufgabe ist sensibel, ihre Macht ist groß. Ein unbedachtes Wort kann weltweit Krisen auslösen und politische Erdbeben verursachen. Jedes Jahr im August treffen sich in Jackson Hole, Wyoming – fernab der Weltöffentlichkeit –, die vierzig wichtigsten Zentralbanker der Welt. Sie stehen in dauernden Interessenkonflikten zwischen nationalen Interessen und internationalem Druck. Neil Irwin erklärt spannend und anschaulich, was Zentralbanker tun und wie es zu massiven Fehlentscheidungen kommen kann. Er beschreibt, welche großen Auswirkungen kleine Unstimmigkeiten zwischen Jens Weidmann, Mario Draghi und Ben Bernanke haben können. Und er zeigt, wie die zukünftigen Herausforderungen, Allianzen und Strategien der Zentralbanker aussehen könnten.

Resisting Corporate Corruption teaches business ethics in a manner very different from the philosophical and legal frameworks that dominate graduate schools. The book offers twenty-eight case studies and nine essays that cover a full range of business practice, controls and ethics issues. The essays discuss the nature of sound financial controls, root causes of the Financial Crisis, and the evolving nature of whistleblower protections. The cases are framed to instruct students in early identification of ethics problems and how to work such issues within corporate organizations. They also provide would-be whistleblowers with instruction on the challenges they’d face, plus information on the legal protections, and outside supports available should they embark on that course. Some of the cases illustrate how ‘The Young are the Most Vulnerable,’ i.e. short service employees are most at risk of being sacrificed by an unethical firm. Other cases show the ethical dilemmas facing well-known CEOs and the alternatives they can employ to better combine ethical conduct and sound business strategy. Through these case studies, students should emerge with a practical toolkit that better enables them to follow their moral compass. Finally, the cases provide an in depth look at how a corporation becomes progressively corrupted (Enron), how the Financial Crisis was rooted in ethical decay at institutions as diverse as Countrywide, Goldman Sacks, Citigroup, Fannie Mae and Moody’s, and at the ethical challenges that persist in the post-Crisis, post-Dodd-Frank environment.

In den letzten Jahren dominiert ein Thema die Schlagzeilen: die Finanzkrise und die maroden Banken. Und wer bezahlt, wenn mal wieder eine Bank aus dem Ruder läuft? Die Sparer und die Steuerzahler! Trotzdem schaffen es die Bankmanager immer wieder, sich strengeren Reglements zu entziehen, und tischen dafür die aberwitzigsten Argumente auf. Anat Admati und Martin Hellwig untersuchen diese "modernen Märchen" und kommen eindeutig zu dem Schluss, dass es keineswegs notwendig ist, die Vorzüge des Systems zu opfern, um die Banken gesünder und sicherer zu machen. Denn Finanzkonzerne sind oftmals so krisenanfällig, weil sie es sein wollen, um höhere Gewinne zu machen, und nicht, weil sie es müssen. Aus dem Schaden scheint niemand klug geworden zu sein. Damit die zu schwache Regulierung von Banken nicht zur nächsten Krise führt, setzen sich Admati und Hellwig für ambitionierte Reformen ein und schlagen eine Reihe von einfach umzusetzenden Schritten vor. Doch damit sich im Bankensektor etwas bewegt, ist eine kritische Gesellschaft erforderlich. Admati und Hellwig entzaubern das märchenhaft unverständliche Banker-Vokabular und entmystifizieren die Herren des Geldes.

Bank bailouts in the aftermath of the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the onset of the Great Recession brought into sharp relief the power that the global financial sector holds over national politics, and provoked widespread public outrage. In The Power of Inaction, Cornelia Woll details the varying relationships between financial institutions and national governments by comparing national bank rescue schemes in the United States and Europe. Woll starts with a broad overview of bank bailouts in more than twenty countries. Using extensive interviews conducted with bankers, lawmakers, and other key players, she then examines three pairs of countries where similar outcomes might be expected: the United States and United Kingdom, France and Germany, Ireland and Denmark. She finds, however, substantial variation within these pairs. In some cases the financial sector is intimately involved in the design of bailout packages; elsewhere it chooses to remain at arm’s length. Such differences are often ascribed to one of two conditions: either the state is strong and can impose terms, or the state is weak and corrupted by industry lobbying. Woll presents a third option, where the inaction of the financial sector critically shapes the design of bailout packages in favor of the industry. She demonstrates that financial institutions were most powerful in those settings where they could avoid a joint response and force national policymakers to deal with banks on a piecemeal basis. The power to remain collectively inactive, she argues, has had important consequences for bailout arrangements and ultimately affected how the public and private sectors have shared the cost burden of these massive policy decisions.

Distinctive due to explicit and systematically developed links between international relations (IR) and related disciplines, this book addresses global and regional interactions and the complex policy problems that often characterise this agenda. Such enhanced communication is crucial for improving the capacity of IR to engage with concrete issues that today are of high policy relevance for international organisations, states, diplomats, mediators and humankind in general. Whilst the authors do not reject the present IR, they offer a wider research agenda with new directions intended not only for those IR scholars who are unsatisfied with the analytical power of the current discipline, but also for those working on 'international', 'foreign', 'global' or 'interregional' issues in other disciplines and fields of research. In this instance they pay particular attention to linking up with peace research, international political economy (IPE) and cultural political economy (CPE), sociology, political geography, development studies, linguistics, cultural studies, environmental studies and energy research, gender studies, and traditions of area studies.

In seinem Buch liefert er eine große und fundierte Analyse der Krise und beantwortet die wichtigsten Fragen, die Wirtschaft, Politik und Gesellschaft aktuell bewegen, wie: Wer ist schuld an der Krise, die Märkte oder der Staat? Was ist die Zukunft des Kapitalismus? Wie können wir das globale Wirtschaftssystem reformieren, um zukünftige Krisen zu verhindern? Roubini erklärt die globalen wirtschaftlichen Zusammenhänge ganz neu. Er schaut für uns in die Zukunft und sagt, wie die Weltwirtschaft aus der Krise herauskommen kann und draußen bleiben wird.

New York Times Bestseller One of our wisest and most clear-eyed economic thinkers offers a masterful narrative of the crisis and its lessons. Many fine books on the financial crisis were first drafts of history—books written to fill the need for immediate understanding. Alan S. Blinder, esteemed Princeton professor, Wall Street Journal columnist, and former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, held off, taking the time to understand the crisis and to think his way through to a truly comprehensive and coherent narrative of how the worst economic crisis in postwar American history happened, what the government did to fight it, and what we can do from here—mired as we still are in its wreckage. With bracing clarity, Blinder shows us how the U.S. financial system, which had grown far too complex for its own good—and too unregulated for the public good—experienced a perfect storm beginning in 2007. Things started unraveling when the much-chronicled housing bubble burst, but the ensuing implosion of what Blinder calls the “bond bubble” was larger and more devastating. Some people think of the financial industry as a sideshow with little relevance to the real economy—where the jobs, factories, and shops are. But finance is more like the circulatory system of the economic body: if the blood stops flowing, the body goes into cardiac arrest. When America’s financial structure crumbled, the damage proved to be not only deep, but wide. It took the crisis for the world to discover, to its horror, just how truly interconnected—and fragile—the global financial system is. Some observers argue that large global forces were the major culprits of the crisis. Blinder disagrees, arguing that the problem started in the U.S. and was pushed abroad, as complex, opaque, and overrated investment products were exported to a hungry world, which was nearly poisoned by them. The second part of the story explains how American and international government intervention kept us from a total meltdown. Many of the U.S. government’s actions, particularly the Fed’s, were previously unimaginable. And to an amazing—and certainly misunderstood—extent, they worked. The worst did not happen. Blinder offers clear-eyed answers to the questions still before us, even if some of the choices ahead are as divisive as they are unavoidable. After the Music Stopped is an essential history that we cannot afford to forget, because one thing history teaches is that it will happen again.
