The ABCT making its presence in the maintream literature

A few days ago, inspired by a recent paper by Guillermo Calvo, Peter Boettke asked at Coordination Problem to complete a list of recent «non-Austrian» papers that implicitly or explicitly use the ABCT to explain what went wrong in the 2008 financial crisis.

Here’s a list with some papers I encountered in the last few years, plus some suggestion by others (i.e. Roger Koppl in the comment section of Pete’s post):
