Not greedy bankers, not reckless homeowners, but the ever widening-gulf between the rich and the poor? And what if the lack of social services--like health care--made things much, much worse? This is the startling new theory from Raghuram Rajan.

There is an embarrassment of causes--especially embarrassing when you recall how few people saw where they might lead. Raghuram Rajan. That gives his novel and sometimes surprising thesis added authority. He argues in his excellent new book that the roots of the calamity go wider and deeper still. This makes his new book, Fault Lines, worthy of consideration amidst the rampant speculation about the causes of the financial crisis. Fault Lines is valuable primarily for its clear explanation of unintended economic consequences from well-meaning government intervention.

Rajan then puts forward broad policy recommendations to ward off a future problem. Rajan's book takes a comprehensive look at what got us into the crisis and offers an intriguing approach to avoiding another one.

It's brief, well-written, and extremely interesting. I would definitely recommend adding it to your financial crisis reading list. Along with revamping Wall Street's pay system, he offers innovative ideas on building capital buffers into the global credit system, obviating much of the need for bailouts of companies deemed too big or too enmeshed in the financial system to fail.

He argues that interest rates were kept very low - credit very loose - in order to help the lower class get a leg up.

Since their income had stagnated, and since better education to pull them into the middle and upper classes is a very long-term solution and thus extremely difficult to achieve politically, policymakers helped low-income Americans achieve a higher standard of living by allowing them to download homes and pull equity out of their homes.

Needless to say, this went on too long, and the real estate bubble was created.

Americans overconsumed, took on onerous debt, and thus enabled the countries we were downloading from, mainly Germany, Japan, and China, to shortchange their own economies by relying too much on growth from exports. If we had a stronger safety net in the U. When the Fed, the Treasury, and politicians use stimulus this way during jobless recoveries, whether by keeping interest rates extremely low or passing legislation to pump billions into the economy, it has unintended and damaging consequences: it creates bubbles, it advantages debtors and disadvantages savers, it's a gigantic giveaway to the banks, it artificially props up the housing market and housing prices, and it warps incentives in the financial sector.

Rajan urges reforms in two areas: the financial sector, and the safety net. In the financial sector, incentives are dangerously aligned with taking on risk.

Wall Street assumes that certain institutions will be bailed out if they fail, and they are correct in this. Rajan uses the phrase "too systemic to fail" rather than "too big to fail," because it's not size but interconnectedness that determines when government will step in and rescue.

Government rescues must stop, because they distort the entire financial sector. Financial institutions should know what their risk exposures are, and this information should be made available to the markets on a regular basis; during the financial crisis, many companies had no idea how much risk they had taken on. If this information is widely known, it can be used to prevent institutions from becoming "systemic.

No short summary can do justice to this well-written, insightful, and nuanced study. Rajan delivered a stark warning to the world's top bankers: They laughed it off.

In the wake of the collapse that followed, Rajan has written a new book, Fault Lines: Like many defenders of the market, Rajan urges us not to demonize the bankers. But it's this fiscal conservative's focus on inequality that makes him stand out from the pack. The growing wage gap, he argues, is a hidden driver of financial instability, putting constant pressure on politicians to enact short-term fixes. Raghuram Rajan's analysis of the global financial crisis remains highly relevant and deserves to be widely read.

The breadth of Rajan's explanatory framework--which is presented cogently and concisely within pages of text--marks this book apart from many others that tackle the same themes.
