The story of the financial turmoil that swept the world in 2007 and 2008 has proven to be geographical to the bone. In this introduction to the special issue on ‘financial geographies’ we express concerns that the financial crisis and all it has showcased is going to be economic geography's ‘next missed boat’. We derive three problematics from the crisis—productivism, epochal thinking and rationality—and discuss the extent financial geography is positioned to address them. The second aim of the introduction is to present an overview of the papers in this special issue and the ways in which they take up the issues raised in this introduction.
