Dr Anastasia Nesvetailova
Reader in International Politics; Course Director, Global Political Economy MA
Dr Anastasia Nesvetailova (MA Manchester, PhD Aberystwyth) joined City in September 2007. Her main research and teaching interests lie in the area of International Political Economy (IPE), finance and financial crises, globalisation and governance.
Her first monograph, Fragile Finance: Debt, Speculation and Crisis in the Age of Global Credit (2007, Palgrave), develops a Minskyan analysis of financial fragility and crises in the late 1990s. Her second monograph, Financial Alchemy in Crisis: The Great Liquidity Illusion (2010, Pluto) focuses on the elusive concept of 'liquidity' in global finance, and specifically, in the global financial crisis of 2007-2009.
Dr Nesvetailova is currently working on the political economy of financial innovation, liquidity and international financial governance.
Dr Nesvetailova talks about the global financial crisis in this interview with Ceris (Centre Européen de Recherches Internationales et Stratégiques)
