A recent report by the IMF on why it failed to spot the 2008 international financial crisis identified what is known as 'cognitive failure' – failures in the way in which information is assessed and analysed. This is highlighted in Frank Vibert's new book, Democracy and Dissent, on international rule making. Frank Vibert is a senior visiting fellow at LSE Global Governance.
