Explores the role played by fundamental factors in driving financial crises. The model of optimal banking crises by Allen and Gale (1998) is explored in detail, as is the first-generation currency crisis model of Krugman (1979). A key insight is that the welfare costs of crisis are associated with the inefficient liquidation of assets and sub-optimal risk sharing, rather than crises per se.

Keywords:   banking crises, currency crises, first-generation crisis models, inefficient liquidation, optimal financial crises
