This is a crisis of the state as well as the market

Some good books were written in the immediate aftermath of the financial crash in 2008 and 2009 - but those authors who spent more time reflecting before writing offer us the best insights.

The latest spiked review of books includes my review of four books on the financial crisis: The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, by Michael Lewis; All the Devils Are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crisis, by Bethany McLean and Joe Nocera; Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance, by Nouriel Roubini and Stephen Mihm; and Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy, by Raghuram Rajan. You can read it in full here.
