Anat Admati, One of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People for 2014 Winner of the 2013 PROSE Award in Business, Finance & Management, Association of American Publishers Co-Winners of the 2014 Bronze Medal in Economics, Axiom Business Book Awards One of BloombergBusinessweek Best Books of 2013, selected by Jason Furman (chairman of the U.S. Council of Economic Advisors) One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 2013 One of The Wall Street Journal's Best Nonfiction Books of 2013 One of Financial Times ( Best Economics Books of 2013 Shortlisted for the 2013 Deutsche Wirtschaftsbuchpreis (German Business and Economics Book Award), sponsored by Handelsblatt, the Frankfurt Book Fair, and Goldman Sachs Selected for the 'Moyers & Company' Recommended Books List 2014 Shortlisted for the 2013 Spear's Book Award in Business "Insightful ..."--Floyd Norris, New York Times "[I]mportant ..."--John Cassidy, "Crucial ..."--Jim Surowiecki, "In their recent book, Anat Admati and Martin Hellwig convincingly make the case for much stronger and simpler borrowing limitations for banks."--Roger Alcaly, New York Review of Books "Ms. Admati and Mr. Hellwig, top-notch academic financial economists, do understand the complexities of banking, and they helpfully slice through the bankers' self-serving nonsense. Demolishing these fallacies is the central point of The Bankers' New Clothes."--John Cochrane, Wall Street Journal "Professor and journalist Admati and economic researcher Hellwig argue that it is possible to have a well-balanced banking system without any cost to society; weak regulations and lax enforcement is what caused the buildup of risk unleashed in the crisis. Here, they aim to demystify banking and expand the range of voices in the debate; encouraging people to form opinions and express doubts will ensure a healthier financial system as people understand the issues and influence policy... The authors push for aggressive reform by outlining specific steps that can be taken to change our banking system for the better."--Publishers Weekly "In a year of important books about the recent economic crisis, the most important one told us simply how to stop the next one."--Wall Street Journal, Best Nonfiction 2013 selection "The most important [book] to emerge from the crisis... The authors achieve three things. First, they explain basic financial theory with simple examples that any moderately numerate individual can understand. Second, they show that these basic ideas apply, with modest differences, also to banking. Finally, they prove that, in opposing them, bankers and their apologists have spun intellectual raiment as invisible as the emperor's new clothes... Read this book. You will then understand the economics. Once you have done so, you will also appreciate that we have failed to remove the causes of the crisis. Further such crises will come."--Martin Wolf, Financial Times "[P]owerful... The authors persuasively argue that the solution is higher levels of equity capital throughout the banking industry to offset the impact of the implied government protections against failure."'s Free Exchange "An excellent new book ..."--Matthew Yglesias, "[A]n important new book called The Bankers' New Clothes ... offers what the Dodd-Frank legislation mostly lacked: a simple and elegant solution to the problem of financial stability. They argue that banks should fund themselves with more equity and less debt--or, to put it bluntly, that banks should risk more of their own money, and less of everyone else's."--Christopher Matthews, "An important book for readers interested in what has been done, and what remains to be done, when it comes to safeguarding financial institutions."--Kirkus Reviews "This book's aim, decisively achieved, is to de-mystify the public conversation about banking so we can all understand how threadbare the industry is."--Diane Coyle, Enlightened Economist blog "This title is a must read for management and human resource professionals within the banking industry as well as government policymakers. With its clear explanations, many examples, and analogies, the book is accessible to readers who do not have business backgrounds and who want to better understand banking."--Library Journal "Ms. Anat 'gets' banking, and gets it better than most. The fact that she is ruffling feather relates more to the fact that she is questioning deeply held--yet hardly ever challenged--belief systems within the industry, than any lack of understanding."--Izabella Kaminska,'s Alphaville blog "Admati and Hellwig have done something extraordinary. They took [banking] frustration and all its complex details and gave it a simple narrative, one that both explains what banks have been getting away with and what we might ask that Congress do about it."--Brendan Greeley, Bloomberg Businessweek "Admati and Hellwig offer a simple prescription for this complex world ..."--Thomas G. Donlan, Barron's "Anat Admati and Martin Hellwig are academics with a gift for taking the mind-numbing minutiae of banking and presenting it in a way that the average reader can understand. One by one, the self-serving protests of the banking industry against tougher regulations are lined up and struck down in The Bankers' New Clothes... The authors map out the regulatory flaws that make it easy for debt-junkie bankers to get rich when times are good, and leave them hanging around protesting when times are worse thanks to their own recklessness."--Susan Antilla, Bloomberg News "Admati and Hellwig explain, in layman's terms, some of the silly arguments bankers make for keeping to the status quo and preventing any new regulation of the banks from ever being enacted. And they do a great job... Admati and Hellwig have made a gift to you. You don't have to go wrestle with banks' financial statements or their annual reports or their 10Q's. You don't need to pull out your old accounting textbooks or call your college economics teacher to have her explain to you again why debt leverage increases risk. Admati and Hellwig have done all the hard work for you. But, you have to read their book."--John R. Talbott, Huffington Post "The Bankers' New Clothes is wowing critics of fragile banks with a simple and attractive message: Force banks to have much thicker cushions of capital and you can make them safer without paying any cost in terms of higher interest rates, less lending, or lower economic growth."--Peter Coy, Bloomberg Businessweek "Financial regulation has become a hot topic in the wake of the recent crisis; many complex proposals have ensued, and a dizzying array of new acronyms and agencies has emerged. But in their new book, Admati and Hellwig make a forceful case for a classic and simple solution to excessive, unregulated lending: higher capital ratios for banks."--Finance & Development "Admati and Hellwig don't just criticize bankers. The real strength of their book is that they walk their readers through the balance sheet and to a regulatory answer to the banking problem, an answer that's elegant in its simplicity and far-reaching in its potential to prevent and manage financial crises."--Randolph Walerius, Roll Call "The Bankers' New Clothes (Princeton University Press) is a book that lays out the problems in banking revealed by the crisis and asks how to solve them. The authors, Anat Admati and Martin Hellwig draw upon accounts of the crisis and come up with some clear prescriptions based on what they see as the biggest problem--that banks are over-leveraged."--Nick Dunbar, "Admati and Hellwig's analytical rigour is convincing... The value of The Bankers' New Clothes is that it sets all out in clear and accessible terms over little more than 200 pages, without cutting corners."--George Hay, Reuters Breakingviews "Increasing capital is the most sure-fire way of improving financial stability. Indeed, a new book--The Bankers' New Clothes--cogently argues that equity/debt ratios in banks could and should be increased drastically to levels more like those of ordinary businesses."--Richard Saunders, Financial News "One can only hope that non-financial readers who want to improve the focus of their frustration will find their way to this book. Perhaps, then, policy-makers will start to feel pressure for smarter change."--Peter Morris, Financial World "Many readers may feel their stomachs sink at the mention of capital ratios and systemic risk. But Anat Admati, a finance professor at Stanford University, and Martin Hellwig, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods, have done an admirable job in explaining how capital in the banking system works to absorb shocks, and how too little of it makes banks unstable."--Economist "The authors have written the book for the enlightenment of the average reader who has no background in economics, finance or quantitative fields. But it can be read by anyone interested in banking--bankers, policy makers and researchers."--Business Standard "[The Bankers' New Clothes is] a clearly written, sensible analysis of problems and cures for the U.S. banking system... Admati and Hellwig take a lot of time to clearly explain the problems with depending too much on borrowed money ..."--Dale Singer, St. Louis Post-Dispatch "The Bankers' New Clothes is a lucid exposition of the intellectual falsehoods deployed by banks to justify the ways in which they went about growing their business beyond any reasonable assessment of risk in the run-up of the crisis of 2008 and which they continue to peddle today. Admati and Hellwig cut through the debates about whether it was too little or too much regulation that was to blame, whether central banks could and should have acted faster, and the rights and wrongs of securitisation or separating commercial and investment banking, and go to the heart of the matter."--Will Hutton, New Statesman "[T]hought provoking ..."--Heather Stewart, Observer "[Admati's and Hellwig's] case that the banking industry still needs a shake-up is persuasive. And you have to admire their nerve in tackling the lobby head-on because, like t...

5 von 6 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Franz Waldenberger am 11. Juni 2013
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This eye opening book written by two brilliant academics in the field of banking and finance has two important messages. First the good news: There is a straightforward solution to fixing the apparent deficiencies of banking systems, namely by having banks increase the share of equity finance to say 20 to 30 per cent. A higher equity ratio will by itself function as a buffer in times of trouble. But even more important, it will prevent banks from gambling with other people's (depositor and consequently tax payer) money. The book reveals that the typical banker argument that equity is "too expensive"; and higher equity requirements will increase credit costs is non-sense. Equity only appears expensive because debt is subsidized by tax payer backed deposit insurance and bailout schemes. The bad news: We cannot hope that the simple solution will be implemented as law makers seem to listen more to behind the scene operating banking lobbyists than to arguments brought forward in public hearings. I hesitate to give the fifth star because the sometimes lengthy expositions let the reader easily loose sight of the central argument.

Hellwig und Admati machen radikale Vorschläge zur Stabilisierung des Finanzsystems. Ihre Idee, Banken einfach deutlich mehr Eigenkapital halten zu lassen besticht durch ihre Simplizität und Nachvollziehbarkeit. Insofern ein gutes und wichtiges Buch, das auch sehr schön eingängig geschrieben ist.

Es ist allerdings erkennbar für ein breites Publikum geschrieben. Wenn man sich also im Bankenwesen gut auskennt werden einem viele Stellen etwas lang bzw. zu simpel vorkommen.

Da verständlich und flüssig geschrieben,gut und ausführlich dokumentiert und es die wichtigsten Punkte aufgreift. Die Autoren legen viel Gewicht auf die stärkere Unterlegung von bankaktivitäten durch
Hartes Eigenkapital und haben damit vermutlich die jüngsten Entwicklungen in der Regulierung antizipiert. Einzig stellenweise kann man kritisieren, dass ihre Ablehnung gewisser Argumente der Banken dogmatisch und wenig ausformuliert wirken mag (Verteuerung der Kredite).

One wishes that all politicians and bank regulators could be forced to read this book. The financial world probably would be a safer place.
