How does America manage crisis on behalf of international finance in the absence of a global state? Doyran explores the relationship between state power and global finance and in particular examines the various attempts by the US state at financial crisis management. The case studies highlight the dramatic consequences of the rise of financial capitalism in the US economy, and also explore regulatory sources of market failures, systemic risk and moral hazard. This book focuses on this primary issue facing scholars of American power in various social science disciplines, including political science, finance and international relations, professional financial analysts and Government officials. This book is for the critical reader who is interested in financial policy and wants to learn more about the causes and consequences of the rise of financial markets.
