Links to analyses of financial crisis

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mark Latham @ 4:29 pm

Here are some links to expert analyses that I have found helpful for thinking about the crisis – history, causes, and proposed policy responses. (Please let me know about other sources.)

1. Paul Krugman’s blog at the New York Times

2. Zingales – Why Paulson Is Wrong

3. Douglas Diamond et al – Fixing the Paulson Plan

4. U Chicago B-School: Comparing Alternatives to the Paulson Plan

5. RGE Monitor group blog by various economists

6. 2008-09-23 Princeton economists panel
(Hyun Shin, Markus Brennermeier, Harrison Hong, Paul Krugman, Alan Blinder)
To me, the highlight was Paul Krugman’s explanation (45 minutes into this video) of why the idea that “we need to take the troubled assets off the financial system’s balance sheets” misses the point.

7. 2008-09-25 Harvard law econ finance panel
