Fragile By Design This is a book that wears its historicism on its sleeve—it contains accounts of systemic banking crises dating back to the 18th century which occurred in many different countries (though their focus inevitably falls on the United States). As such, it’s a work of economic history and political economy—intellectual traditions that Calomiris, who I interviewed on his recent visit to London, is happy to place himself in.
