Abstract

This essay introduces the papers presented at a conference held in April 2009 on the global financial crisis. The issue begins with four articles that survey the key events and analyze important issues around the crisis from the context of four asset classes: the equity market, fixed income market, foreign exchange market, and emerging markets. The goal is to provide readers with a reference source for understanding what happened in each asset class, when and why it happened, and the consequences. The second group of papers provides in-depth analysis of specific aspects of the crisis. These studies include issues such as the FX carry trade, macro shocks and capital flows, Taylor rules in a low-inflation environment, and the credit boom that preceded the crisis.
