"A thoughtful analysis of how and why banks have failed through history"

Dinesen concludes that a historic mistake has been made in the regulatory response to the financial crisis. He argues that, in contrast to the response after the Depression, policymakers decided broadly to regulate banks as they were, with an emphasis on capital adequacy, rather than simplify them to make them more manageable. The analysis bears thinking about, though many will find the prescription uncomfortably radical.
