demonstrates that the global system has indeed become an
-architecture of collapse- subject to a variety of
shocks. An analysis of the global financial crisis of

China, and the European sovereign debt crisis illustrates
how the complexity and tight coupling of system
components creates a situation of precarious stability

of the system, especially the capacity of states and
governments to act, and by containing the shock-diffusing
mechanisms. In particular, those related to phenomena
such as trade imbalances, portfolio investment, cross-
border banking, population ageing, and income and wealth
