Summary note
Many accounts of the financial crisis focus on renegade activity in marginal financial sectors. This book argues that far from this pervading view the shadow finance that initiated the crisis is tightly networked with bank-based finance. It traces these networks to explain how the now decade-long crisis took shape.
