The geography of the financial crisis has become a growing area of research (Aalbers, 2009; Cameron, 2008; Sidaway, 2008). Wainwright and Rodgers (2013) argue that the financial crisis “could be better viewed as a series of uneven and interrelated crises” (page 1008), including the sovereign debt crisis, on which they elaborate by focusing on the need to examine tax systems and their implications across a variety of economic spaces. Theirs is a timely call that should be supported by all social scientists in a collaborative and interdisciplinary effort.
