Financial Crisis (Introduction)

Čihák, Martin

Year: 2009   Volume: 59   Issue: 6   Pages: 502-506

Abstract: Since the bursting of the bubble in the U.S. mortgage market in 2007, the financial turmoil has spread to a wide range of other markets and economies around the world, morphing into a global financial crisis. The five articles in this special issue of the Czech Journal of Economics and Finance cover selected aspects of the crisis, including the contagion from advanced economies to emerging markets, the potential for contagion among European emerging markets, the differentiated impact of the crisis on European economies, and the negative spillovers between market liquidity and banking sector liquidity during the crisis. This introduction provides an overview of the articles in the special issue, putting them into a broader perspective.
