Great Crashes : Lessons from Global Meltdowns and How to Prevent Them / Linda Yueh

Write a Review








For the last century, financial crash after financial crash has sent shockwaves through our world. It's time we learned from them.

'Remarkably accessible' The Times

There is very little that is certain in economics, except this: there will be another financial crisis.

But while we may not be able to stop the next one, we can predict and contain it.

The Great Crashes tells the stories of ten historic financial events - from the Wall Street Crash and the dot com boom and bust to the COVID pandemic - and what we can learn from them.

Combining her clear-eyed analysis with compelling storytelling, renowned economist Professor Linda Yueh uses these meltdowns to extract a critical three-step framework to help us to recognise the early signs of a crash, mitigate the effects and even prevent them in the future.

It is a book that offers urgent lessons for the modern world.
