In The Problem With Banks, Timothy J. Sinclair and Lena Rethel argue that banks suffer from perennial problems, and that developments in the financial markets and government in recent decades have simply exacerbated these issues. This book is an interesting and highly recommended read, not just because Rethel and Sinclair explain how the role of banks shaped the financial crisis, but because they show how important it is to change the position of banks within our economies, writes Carlos Carrasco Farré.
