Regulation and financial crisis

An ever-growing number of analyses are being devoted to the now-familiar financial mechanisms which have led to the large-scale crisis underway. In order to take a more distanced approach in relation to this burning issue, the Revue de la Régulation has opted to address the following underlying questions:

  • Is the present crisis a major crisis in the sense of Regulation theory, namely a crisis proper to the so-called ‘financialised capital’ regime?

  • If so, should we expect a radical transformation of that regime? Through what processes?

  • If not, should recent events be seen as the recurring expression of the instabilities inherent in deregulated finance?

The Revue de la Régulation would like to open this debate, which calls for making a distinction between the basic trends of the financialised macro-economy and the dynamics proper to the deregulated financial structures.

Brief proposals for articles (title + argument in 5-10 lines) should be sent to: regulation AT revues.org

Deadline for proposals: 10 November 2008.

Deadline for completed articles: 31 December 2008.

The special issue is scheduled to appear in March 2009 and its publication will be accompanied by a one-day seminar at the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme, Paris Nord.
