Although there have been numerous studies of the causes and consequences of the Great Financial Crisis of 2007–2010 in the US and abroad, many of these were undertaken only for a small number of countries and before the financial and economic effects were fully realized and before various governmental policy responses were decided upon and actually implemented. This book aims to fill these voids by providing a more thorough assessment now that the worst events and the regulatory reforms are sufficiently behind us and much more information about these developments is available. It reviews and analyzes the causes and consequences of and the regulatory responses to the Great Financial Crisis, particularly from a public policy viewpoint. In the process, it explores such intriguing questions as: What caused the crisis? How did the crisis differ across countries? What is the outlook for another crisis, and when? This is a must read for those who are trying to find answers to these questions.

The edition of Judge Posner's highly-regarded casebook builds on its strengths to transmit a clear and understandable economic analysis of legal rules and institutions: superb authorship--Judge Posner is not only one of the nation's most respected legal thinkers, but also one of the best casebook writers uniquely broad topical coverage -- no other book addresses as many legal subjects; Posner covers almost the whole legal system sensible organization--based on legal, rather than economic, concepts requires no prior study of economics -- written expressly for law students, this book assumes no familiarity with specific economic or mathematical principles. Fifth Edition topical coverage incluses: affirmative action substantial performance social norms the punishment of wealth criminals to commerce These provocative topics stimulate lively class discussion as they expose students to the process of economic analysis. the book progresses logically from basic to more sophisticated issues: Law and Economics: An Introduction the Common Law Public Regulation of the Market the Law of Business Organizations and Financial Markets Law and the Distribution of Income and Wealth the Legal Process the Constitution and the Federal System An extensive Teacher's Manual offers effective advice for class preparation.
