【關於此書】

美國過去20年來的成長大量依賴國內房地產市場,房貸將國際資金引進美國市場,為了獲取更高獲利,所採取的寬鬆審核制度,造成08年以來的金融危機,對經濟成長造成重大影響。而美國向來以龐大的經濟力在世界各國橫行,在美國經濟危機之後,長期專注政治與經濟的Schwartz教授認為美國本土的房貸問題將不僅對美國經濟持續造成影響,對於美國在國際經濟與政治的地位與未來都將有重大而深遠的影響,例如美元作為國際通用貨幣的地位岌岌可危,美國在世界的霸權地位也已動搖。

Review
This stunning book is undoubtedly one of the most important and innovatory studies of American power.”–Ronen Palan,University of Birmingham

Subprime Nation makes it clear why we need the field of International Political Economy. Only someone with Herman M. Schwartz’s breadth of historical knowledge and familiarity with the intricacies of international financial flows and the contextually specific motivations of political leaders in a dozen countries could have developed such a convincing explanation of the current global economic crisis. Ultimately, it is a story about power: about power that United States (perhaps unexpectedly) held until 2008, and about the power of those, around the world, who benefited from the peculiar global economy of the 1990s, and who, Schwartz worries, may not be willing to give up their advantages that must be given up for the crisis to end.”–Craig N. Murphy, M. Margaret Ball Professor of International Relations, Wellesley College
