The Ongoing Global Financial Crisis
The Ongoing Global Financial Crisis
What are key lessons from the Global Financial Crisis that began in the middle of 2007 and continues into the present day? Professor Rajsingh will answer questions such as: why were some private, profit-making institutions "too big to fail," what are the main causal roots of the Crisis, and where do you find the Shadow Banking System? In this talk, Rajsingh will explore core concepts associated with the GFC such as credit, banking, fiscal and monetary policy, economic mismatches and imbalances, risk taking and issues of business ethics--all in order to consider how we can move forward with lessons learned.
