Abstract

This Foreword to a themed volume of the University of Miami Law Review relates the different contributions to the volume to emerging narratives of the financial crisis: monetary policy, deregulation, bad regulation, innovation run amok, and greed. It emphasizes how this crisis has been different from other recent crises because of the lack of a representative face, and how this anonymity has made it more difficult to understand the crisis.

Keywords: financial crisis, securitization, derivatives, narrative
