Jim and Demetri explore financial history stretching back to some of the earliest economic philosophers, recount the deregulation of the financial system from the time of Bretton Woods, through the financial panics in Asia in the late 1990s and the Financial Crisis of 2008. They address one of economics professions’ greatest weaknesses, namely, the desperate need for better modeling. What can complexity theory, bayesian analysis, and behavioral psychology tell us about our world? How can these theories help improve or replace our broken models? They end with projections about the future and why James believes the next crisis is bigger, runs deeper, and is much closer than most of us might imagine.
