    It was Northern Rock we had to tackle first, and straight away. It's incredible that large institutional investment managers were more or less asleep at the switch with respect to the non-bank ABCP's. It's not about the behind-the scenes negotiations which led to the market solution, which is what I was hoping to read about in this book. You aren't alone. People may have been panicking in a very British way — there was no shouting or hammering on windows — but they wanted their money out. Not such a good idea, I thought.

    The strains and stresses that had been there all along, but had not been evident, suddenly became very apparent. The authors present this as a uniquely Back from the Brink book problem, with a uniquely Canadian solution. At one point, the financial crisis was so deep that power supply to its office was cut off for non-payment of bills. The echoing venue, then, was a grand Moorish hall in the Palacio da Bolso in Porto where European finance ministers and central bank governors had gathered for a meeting of the European Union's economic and financial affairs council, Ecofin. It also offers excellent suggestions when it comes to finding the right career and work path, as well as navigating the tricky world of helping someone with depression. If the insurance companies collapsed, British banks would be badly hit.

    It is not just a football story. How to find fulfilling work and How to incorporate exercise and other health-support activities into everyday life. That story has until now never been told. In the interview, Kennedy talks about being crucially mentored by a man who invested in him as a person and being shaped profoundly by that experience.

As we descended through the clouds, the thought came to me: I was damned if our reputation was going to be destroyed over the failure of a small, reckless bank.

Politically, it was potentially fatal. Sitting by the pool side, I noticed an item reporting that the French bank BNP Paribas had frozen withdrawals from two of its funds.

The book also charts the best course through the mental health system. But what happened in many cases was that one part of a bank sold off the loans and, unwittingly, another part of the same bank bought them back. The strains and stresses that had been there all along, but had not been evident, suddenly became very apparent.

The downside was that the whole interlinked system was entirely dependent on the banks' ability to borrow from each other. If they can't roll over this funding, which they often need to do every ten or twenty days, then they are in real trouble.

Back from the Brink goes behind the scenes of the ABCP crisis to examine how a solution was reached and lessons learned that could prevent or mitigate future crises.

It all began in Manchester, where McGrath would regularly drink with Bryan Robson and Norman Whiteside from the end of training on a Tuesday into the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The FSA, in turn, had spent a great deal of time since its inception concentrating on consumer issues, rather than examining the systemic risks that were to bring the entire system to the brink of collapse twelve months later. Common purpose: Realigning business, economies, and society by Colm Kelly and Blair Sheppard Tooze contrasts the image of the crisis as an emblem of American decline with the reality that the U.
