From the Paper:

"The financial market can then be blamed for at least having supported the emergence of the crisis, but it can also be praised for other major achievements. In order to better assess the achievements and failures of the global financial market, one should first get a thorough understanding of three of its most important concepts: setting the base interest rate, the features of foreign exchange markets through the lens of monetary policies and third, the differences between international and domestic banking."
