Who could have thought that banks would become nationalised, that state debts would reach historical levels, that bulge bracket investment banks would go bankrupt and that the masters of the universe would be so widely vilified? Each in their own way, the four reflections collected in this article address the new issues raised by the financial meltdown for the past and future of financial geography. They also reflect back on the issues raised in the introduction to the special issue and the way the papers making up the special issue provide ammunition for future research. The comments offer a remarkably coherent message that reflects that conveyed in the introduction about the potential, and especially the need to realise the potential, of financial geography at the current time.
