Preventing Financial Chaos: An International Guide to Legal Rules and Operational Procedures for Handling Insolvent Banks

There is a fundamental reason, the authors of this book contend, why national financial systems falter and collapse: the failure of central banks and other supervisory authorities to deal promptly and decisively with insolvent banks. In Preventing Financial Chaos, Ramsey and Head, both well-known to the international banking community for their restructuring services in developing and transitional economies, take a no-nonsense attitude and show exactly how to usher a problem bank out of the financial system in any country. Their clearly defined rules and procedures build disciplined, competent action that activates political will and successfully curtails systemic chaos. With this nuts-and-bolts guide, policymakers, legislators, central bank officials, and representatives of international financial institutions will be able to achieve the following: recognize, monitor and resolve bank failures; conduct timely and orderly closing of problem banks; and develop national legislation to prevent the spread of bank insolvency. The authors' firmly-held convictions about which choices should be made and why is sure to launch an important debate among lawyers, bankers and academics--a debate which will inevitably focus much-needed attention on one of the most urgent problems in today's interdependent world economic order.

The Court of Appeal

Civil justice has been undergoing a massive transformation. There have been big changes in the management of judicial business; the Human Rights Act 1988 has had a pervasive impact; the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 has effected many changes - notably, the prospective transfer of the appellate jurisdiction of the House of Lords to a new Supreme Court. Against this backcloth of radical change, this book looks at the recent history and the present-day operation of the civil division of the Court of Appeal - a court that, despite its pivotal position, has attracted surprisingly little scholarly attention. It examines the impact of the permission to appeal requirements, and the way in which applications - particularly those by litigants in person - are handled; it looks at the working methods of the Lords Justices and at the leadership of the Court by recent Masters of the Rolls; it considers the relationship between the Court and the House of Lords - looking at high-profile cases in which the Court has been reversed by the Lords. Notwithstanding the impending arrival of the Supreme Court, it concludes that 'the Court of Appeal will remain firmly in place, occupying its crucial position as, to all intents and purposes, the court of last resort-indeed, a supreme court-for most civil appellants.'
