Daan in ’t Veld investigates complex systems in financial economics and applies the theory of complex systems to interbank and stock markets. The questions he seeks to answer originate mainly from the 2007/2008 financial crisis. In retrospect, the single most important event of this crisis was the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers on 15 September 2008. He hereby throws light on the issue of how the relatively minor problems in the U.S. mortgage market could grow to an endogenously emerging and global financial-economic crisis.
