Symptomatic to Systemic: Understanding Postwar Cycles and Financial Debacles

Author: Steven Ricchiuto

In Symptomatic to Systemic, Steven Ricchiuto examines an exhaustive data set of analytics around each postwar business cycle. He identifies the underlying causes precipitating downturns in the economy and finds that financial dislocations and debacles have undergone a distressing evolution. They are no longer the result of a classic economic contraction, but seemingly systemic causes that operate independently of traditional predictors of recessions.

Ricchiuto's book helps readers recognize the factors that are driving key markets and interpret the new indicators of economic health. Symptomatic to Systemic provides clues as to where the next contraction may surface so that readers won't be caught unaware.
