The motivation behind this Special Issue is to address the effect of financial crises on poverty. Given that the world has faced two large financial crises in the 21st century (in fact, one of them—related to Covid-19—is still unfolding), it would be particularly interesting and potentially important to attempt to shed further light on this important and topical issue. Please note that research that is related to the topic, but which may focus on another financial crisis (e.g., banking crisis, currency crisis, debt crisis) is also welcome. Topics that could be examined may focus, for instance, on the characteristics of people who become poor, and whether these differ from those of the chronically poor and the general population. Along the same lines, the question of whether the poor suffer disproportionately to the non-poor in periods of crisis could also be addressed. Moreover, research could also focus on how financial crises may affect income distribution and through which channels (slowdown in economic activity, reduction in asset prices, exchange rates etc.). It could also address issues such as unemployment and changes in wages, as well as policy responses. Of course, the aforementioned list of suggestions is non-exhaustive. The findings of the research carried out in this Special Issue should be of use to policy-makers wishing to identify leading monitoring indicators to track the impact of macroeconomic shocks and to design policies that protect the more vulnerable groups in times of financial crises.
