Economics student writes blog about sovereign balance sheets and the global financial crisis.

My intent is for this blog to summarise papers in this vein, but it is possible that I will add some original content as well. I will focus on literature relating to the effect of policy responses to the crisis on government and central bank balance sheets, but also plan to look at empirical literature describing the crisis and events leading up to it, and institutional detail of money markets and government and central bank operating procedures.
