Book Review Abstract

Matthew Richardson of New York University Stern School of Business reviews "Balancing the Banks: Global Lessons from the Financial Crisis" by Mathias Dewatripont, Jean-Charles Rochet, and Jean Tirole. The EconLit abstract of the reviewed work begins, "Three previously published papers explore what happened in the recent financial crisis and consider the lessons to be learned in order to avoid a repetition of the large-scale meltdown of financial markets, industrial recession, and public deficits. Papers discuss lessons from the crisis (Jean Tirole); the future of banking regulation (Jean-Charles Rochet); and the treatment of distressed banks (Mathias Dewatripont and Rochet). Dewatripoint is Professor of Economics at the Free University of Brussels, Annual Visiting Professor of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Research Director of the Center for Economic Policy and Research. Rochet is Professor of Economics at the University of Toulouse I.
