Anjan Thakor sends a warning to the banking industry in an article published on the website, The Conversation.
Prof. Thakor draws on his research into the conditions and causes of the last two major financial crises to suggest that we may be heading in the same direction, again.
His research reveals that the longer a lending boom lasts, the more trouble it foreshadows. Thakor’s latest research paper, “Lending Booms, Smart Bankers and Financial Crises,” will be published in the American Economic Review 2015.
