This chapter discusses the four major financial crises that broke out in the core industrial countries between the end of Bretton Woods in 1971 and the early 21st century: the Financial Instability of the early 1970s and the ensuing bank failures, especially in Britain, Germany, and the United States, within the context of ‘stagflation’ and the end of fixed exchange rates; the International Debt Crisis of 1982, when the international financial system was threatened with collapse; the Japanese Banking Crisis of 1997–8, which undermined the financial system of the world's second largest economic power; and the Financial Debacle of 2007–8.
