Just resubbed after a year or more, so I don't know if any other discussion re: Mayer has preceded this. I don't know about this particular book, but Mayer was influenced by Minsky's financial instability hypothesis, which (in some forms) has a marxish flavor. See his Levy Institute working paper no. 232 for his interpretation of the Asian financial crisis as a "textbook" example of Minsky's fih.

Haven't read it. How does Mayer write so many books? How does Michael Perelman write so many books. Writing one every 3 years nearly kills me.
