The sensation of falling in love comes from a chemical secreted by the nervous system, phenylethylamine (or PEA, as Lowndes calls it, as in "Scientists tell us only PEA-brained people fall in Love"), and the trick is to trigger the manufacture of PEA in your potential love partner, giving him or her the...
The Asian financial crisis has generated a lot of research, analysis and debate. The exact causes of the crisis are not firmly established, although various hypotheses have been offered. This paper presents one view of the genesis of the East Asian crisis. Several explanations are examined: managed exchange rates, over and undervalued currencies, crony capitalism, asset bubbles, Japanese devaluation, or “too much” capital account liberalization. A large part of the analysis centers around the proposition that the regime of managed exchange rates was at the core of the problem.

The economic and financial crisis that arose in summer
2007 led to a significant increase in perceptions of risk
in the economy, resulting in a sizeable rise in risk and
liquidity premia on credit markets. Given the nature of
the crisis, the financial sector was particularly affected,
with respect to its financing via both the money market
and the bond market, which may have had an impact
on the retail interest rates offered by banks to busi-
nesses and households.
