Lebanon’s Financial Collapse: A Post-mortem
October 01, 2020
   Lebanon’s simultaneous collapse of the exchange rate of the Lebanese Lira and, more seriously, of the banking sector is unprecedented. The causes of the two failures are separate and separately investigated. The current situation is in contrast with that in the 1980s when the fall of the Lira was more severe but was nonetheless accompanied by a fully functioning and strong banking sector.
