The deregulation of the financial markets that occurred in the 1980s altered the architecture of national financial markets and led to the development of a new global financial system. Central to this process was the enhanced importance of new financial instruments or, more correctly, the extensive use of financial instruments whose origins can be traced back to the 1920s. The deregulation of national banking systems and the development of new financial instruments including securitization produced a crisis in mortgage lending that has been labelled the sub-prime crisis or the credit crunch. This process has undermined the stability of national financial systems as banks have been increasingly unwilling to lend to one another. Heavily leveraged banks or banking systems have suffered and this has led to a situation in which national governments have had to intervene to underwrite private sector banking.

Papers that explore the financial crisis and its consequences are especially welcomed. Papers on all other aspects of research on services are also welcome. Papers can be conceptual, empirical or methodological. We welcome studies from social, geographical, business, economic, policy and management sciences, and particularly interdisciplinary approaches.
