American Journal of Economics and Business Administration


The purpose of this special issue is to methodically address the causes, consequences and implications of the 2007-09 financial crisis. The financial crisis of 2007-09 affected all countries, economic sectors, companies, and resulted in some legal changes. Although its causes, consequences and implications are widely reported and debated in the media, adequate academic research is yet to be performed. Dramatic actions were taken by all economic units ranging from the individual firm to monetary policy makers. Why was the crisis so pervasive? Were policy responses adequate? How did it affect investor behavior? How does it compare with previous economic and financial crises? What are the implications for financial economics models and established theories? These and other aspects of the financial crisis can be addressed in this special issue.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  1. Causes of the financial crisis
  2. Consequences of the financial crisis
  3. Comparison of the 2007-09 financial crisis with previous crises
  4. Inter-Industry comparison of the impact of the financial crisis
  5. Comparative analysis of policy responses to the financial crisis
