Lessons from the Financial Crisis – Causes, Consequences, and Our Economic Future by Robert W. Kolb (editor) is one of 16 publications in the KOLB SERIES IN FINANCE which the library has recently added to the EDL book collection.

With so much information saturating the market about the recent financial crisis, trying to understand why the economic crisis happened and what needs to be done to fix it can be daunting. There is a real need, and demand, from both the financial professionals and scholars to obtain answers as to what really happened and why.

Lessons from the Financial Crisis brings together the leading minds in the worlds of finance, government and academia to dissect the crisis. Divided into three broad themes – a. The Subprime Crisis; b. The Global Financial Crisis; and c. Law, Regulation, the Financial Crisis, and The Future –  this book puts the events that have transpired in perspective, and details why it began and how it developed as well as its effect on people, implication for our economy, and the broader ramifications for our society.

There are altogether 11 chapters written by experienced contributors, each with his or her own unique insights into this crisis. Topics touched upon include:

  • Particular institutional problems that were revealed in the crisis
  • The role of borrowers, especially subprime borrowers, in formenting the crisis
  • The failures of modern risk analysis and management, and how these essential disciplines can be improved
  • The securitization process and how a new way of originating mortgages affected the mortgage market and the broader financial crisis
  • Regulatory, systemic, and other solutions that can b e implemented to avert future problems


`The Robert W. Kolb Series in Finance provides a comprehensive view of the field of finance in all its variety and complexity. The series is projected to include approximately 65 volumes covering all major topics and ecializations in finance ranging from investments, to corporate finance, to financial institutions.’

Currently, the MBS Library Service has purchased 10 of the published books which are now available in the Eddie Davies Library. For more information about the Robert W. Kolb Series in Finance, click on the link below:
