'Financial Crisis Containment and Government Guarantees analyses the international community’s commitment to forging enhanced, well thought-out, mechanisms for containing systemic risks in the context of a highly interconnected global financial framework which incorporates ongoing financial innovation. While use of government guarantees is a central theme, the book also analyses the roles played by prudential regulators, central banks, deposit insurers and treasuries in dealing with the crisis.

Additionally, it focuses on efforts to overcome ongoing obstacles, as well as the as well as the most important proposals to improve safety nets, both at the national level and internationally.'
