"what will strike the reader is the book's remarkable relevance to current events"...(Sunday Times, 19 August 2001) "...pretty well the last word on the subject..." (Financial Times, 12 October 2002)From the Publisher:
The best known and most highly regarded book on financial crises. Financial crises and speculative excess can be traced back to the very beginning of trade and commerce. Since its introduction in 1978, this book has charted and followed this volatile world of financial markets. Charles Kindleberger's brilliant, panoramic history revealed how financial crises follow a nature-like rhythm: they peak and purge, swell and storm. Now this newly revised and expanded Fourth Edition probes the most recent "natural disasters" of the markets-from the difficulties in East Asia and the repercussions of the Mexican crisis to the 1992 Sterling crisis. His sharply drawn history confronts a host of key questions. Charles P. Kindleberger (Boston, MA) was the Ford Professor of Economics at MIT for thirty-three years. He is a financial historian and prolific writer who has published over twenty-four books.

Summary: " Sometime in the next five years you may kick yourself for not reading and re-reading Kindleberger' s Manias, Panics, and Crashes." - Paul A. Samuelson, Institute Professor Emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology " One never picks up a work by Charles Kindleberger without anticipating a feast of entertainment. But underneath the hilarious anecdotes, the elegant epigrams, and the graceful turns of phrase, Kindleberger is deadly serious. The manner in which human beings earn their livings is no laughing matter to him, especially when they attempt to do so at the expense of one another." - from the Foreword by Peter L. Bernstein, author of Against the Gods and The Power of Gold Praise for Manias, Panics, and Crashes " Classic. . . . Manias, Panics, and Crashes is a durable guide to meditation: wise, witty, and practical. It is a template against which to measure the latest financial crisis- whatever and whenever that happens to be."- David Warsh, Boston Globe " Definitive." - Floyd Norris, New York Times " Menacing." - The New Yorker " [Manias, Panics, and Crashes] is a scholarly account of the way that mismanagement of money and credit has led to financial explosions over the centuries." - Richard Lambert, Financial Times " This book sparkles with the best of Kindleberger' s wit, insight, and passion for financial history. A real delight." - Robert Z. Aliber, Professor of International Economics and Finance, University of Chicago, Graduate School of Business " What long has been the best history of financial pathologies is now even better. The reader who absorbs Kindleberger' s lessons will be prepared to foresee and navigate the financial crises that surely lie ahead. Like a true classic, Manias, Panics, and Crashes is both timely and timeless. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0471389455
