Looks at the ways that current dramatic shifts in the domestic and global economy have their roots in the 2008 economic crisis and its aftermath, exploring novel themes in the way the crisis has played out for the past decade and will influence the future."We live in a world where dramatic shifts in the domestic and global economy command the headlines, from rollbacks in U.S. banking regulations to tariffs that may ignite international trade wars. But current events have deep roots, and, as award-winning historian Adam Tooze demonstrates, the key to navigating today's roiling policies lies in the events that started it all--the 2008 economic crisis and its aftermath. [This book] offers an eye-opening and necessary reinterpretation of the personalities, decisions, and policies that dominated economic, political, and international events of the last tumultuous decade, and yet have been widely misunderstood or minimized in the wake of "recovery." Despite initial attempts to downplay the crisis as a local incident, what happened on Wall Street beginning in 2008 was, in fact, a dramatic caesura of global significance that spiraled around the world, from the financial markets of the UK and Europe to the factories and dockyards of Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. As Tooze deftly proves, it forced a major rearrangement of global governance. In the United States and Europe, it caused a fundamental reconsideration of capitalist democracy. It destabilized Ukraine, triggered chaos in Greece, forced the question of Brexit, and set the stage for the rise of Trump. It was the greatest crisis to have struck Western societies since the end of the Cold War, but was it inevitable? And is it over? [This book] reconstructs the story through a wealth of original themes: the haphazard nature of economic development and the erratic path of debt around the world; the unseen way individual countries and regions are linked together in deeply unequal relationships through financial interdependence, investment, politics, and force; the ways the financial crisis inter acted with the spectacular rise of social media, the crisis of middle-class America, the rise of China, and global struggles over fossil fuels. Finally, Tooze asks, given this history, what now are the prospects for a liberal, stable, and coherent world order? With a historian's eye for detail, connection, and consequence, he brings the story right up to today's negotiations, actions, and threats--a much-needed perspective on a global catastrophe and its long-term consequences."--Dust jacket.… (mais)

Invaluable in giving a comprehensive view of the aftermath of the financial crisis, showing the connections and reasons for otherwise disconnected events. Unlike most books on the subject I've read it doesn't concentrate on only one event and doesn't waste time bemoaning man's inhumanity to man. This way it's able to fit a lot of information in a tome that given the subject and span is very slim. ( )

Crashed is a book that is blessed with superb hindsight. It is a timely exploration of the causes and effects of the Global Financial Crises that swept out savings and small banks alike. Ten years later and there are still jobs that just aren’t coming back, while the wealthy continue to accrue more wealth.

The really interesting part of this book is the connection of dozens of threads leading to the collapse of the Economic System. It is exhaustively researched, as one can usually tell with books of this length. In fact, this book was so lengthy, that I did something I rarely do and took some notes. Generally, I read books to gain knowledge and enjoy myself. I don’t like having to take notes since that makes it feel a bit too much like I am in school.

The book is a bit hard going if you don’t read publications like the Wall Street Journal. For instance, I have heard of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but what exactly are they? Well, the book talks about that, but it lays a ton of jargon on you all at once. It is fascinating to read and see all of the mistakes and errors that were created.

With my personal stance on this sort of thing, it is easy to see why I am not a banker or manager of risk. I don’t believe that people should be given loans that they have no possible way to pay. The Subprime Mortgage Crisis is just a small drop though. How did that small drop create a veritable tsunami capable of sweeping the globe? Well, the author, Adam Tooze discusses all of this and more.

Even if you need to have Wikipedia open on a web browser so that you can find out what an Asset-Backed Commercial Paper is, this book might be well worth your time. ( )

"Crashed" is a global economic history spanning the past decade of rolling financial crises—moving from the subprime mortgage crisis in the US, to the Eurozone crisis, to the Chinese stock market turbulence of 2015.

Some of my key takeaways:

THE US SUBPRIME CRISIS WAS FUELED BY EUROPEAN CAPITAL

Although the real-estate development underlying the derivatives that fueled the 2008 financial crisis had their center of gravity in the US, it was European investment capital that fueled supercharged the bubble. Europe still has significantly more financial capital than the United States, and this results in massive investment in US equities.

DON'T EXPECT GLOBAL LEADERSHIP FROM EUROPE

The term "Eurozone" is misleading, as it implies some kind of coherent whole, maybe like the United States of America. Eurozone countries have open borders to member nations, and a share currency.

Greek represents roughly 1.5% of Eurozone GDP (pocket change) and the fact that other member countries were unwilling to either buy Greek bonds or write off Greek debt illustrates that Europe is close to a set of warring nations than allies.

Whereas the Federal Reserve in the US has a dual role, of have an inflation target and keeping unemployment low, the European Central Bank cares solely about currency value. The fact that Spain has 40% unemployment illustrates that the ECB is willing to drive member nations into the ground.

CHINA HAD A CRASH IN 2015

Maybe you didn't hear about it, but China recently had a 50% devaluation in stocks. As China steps up to take the role of dominant global economic powerhouse, it will be further integrated into the global economy. More integration means more liquidity, and more volatility.

In conclusion, "Crashed" drives home the idea that we haven't actually made it to the other side of the financial crises that began a decade ago, and that we, if anything, might actually be more ill-equipped to deal with the next crisis (which could be just around the corner). If you're interested in current global economic affairs, this is a great book for you. ( )

La crisis que se inició en Estados Unidos en septiembre de 2008 no fue un accidente puntual, sino el inicio de un gran cambio global. Sus consecuencias se extendieron también al campo de la política, con manifestaciones que van desde el colapso de Grecia al Brexit o a la elección de Donald Trump como presidente de los Estados Unidos. Adam Tooze nos ofrece ahora un primer intento de escribir la historia global de una década en que una secuencia de crisis financieras han transformado por completo nuestro mundo.
¿Era inevitable? ¿Realmente ha acabado? Crash es una magnífica narración sobre la naturaleza fortuita del desarrollo económico y el camino errático de la deuda en todo el mundo; la manera invisible en que los países y regiones individuales están vinculados en relaciones profundamente desiguales a través de la interdependencia financiera, la inversión, la política y la fuerza; las formas en que la crisis financiera interactuó con el aumento espectacular de las redes sociales, la crisis de la clase media de los Estados Unidos, el ascenso de China o las luchas mundiales por los combustibles fósiles.
Finalmente, Tooze se pregunta, dada esta historia: ¿cuáles son las perspectivas de un orden mundial estable y coherente?

Tooze follows the crisis from mortgages in the US (where many of the big players were not technically US banks, but the crisis was perceived as US-driven anyway) to the Eurozone crisis a few years later. He argues that these were really the same underlying problems, although one looked like a public balance sheet problem and one looked like a private problem; only the US proved capable of truly taking on the challenge of putting enough liquidity into the system. He also explains how other economies, particularly China’s, responded (China built a lot of infrastructure to keep its economy growing, and now they have empty cities instead of accounting balance sheets; query if that’s any better).

I once heard a history professor describe another history professor I knew as ‘a very good, old-fashioned narrative historian’. I wasn’t entirely sure what he meant but I got the pejorative message. Well, call me old-fashioned as well, because I like a historian who sets out to tell me what happened. Which is exactly what Professor Tooze does.
...
This is a great book to which I cannot do justice in a review. There is a particular pleasure to be had engaging with a really big brain and Tooze has one.
