Randall S. Kroszner and Robert J. Shiller
Reforming U.S. Financial Markets
Reflections Before and Beyond Dodd-Frank

Smackdown! Top economists battle over how to save the US financial system.
When the US’s top economists meet at a symposium on remaking America’s financial system, they’re bound to disagree. But in Randall S. Kroszner and Robert J. Shiller’s new book – a brief collection of the papers they presented at Harvard University, along with comments by their equally esteemed colleagues – their divergence lies more in their methods than in their main conclusion: The US financial sector desperately needs a makeover. getAbstract recommends their cogent, well-thought-out reasoning on the causes of the recent financial crisis.
