IN THIS SUMMARY

Fault Lines is economist Raghuram G. Rajan’s endeavor to explain what enabled and triggered the global financial crisis. He draws surprising connections and conclusions that show how many forces converged to bring about the economic meltdown, challenging conventional wisdom about who bears responsibility and what reforms must be made. He cautions that while other nations’ poor economic choices continue to place an undue burden on the United States, unequal access to education and health care in the United States puts it in deeper financial peril. He outlines the hard choices the United States must make to put its financial house in order to ensure a stable world economy.
