Global Financial Crisis

Global Financial Crisis

Overview

The global financial crisis represents a watershed event in financial markets. Problems originating in one local market (US subprime lending) set off a train of events that ultimately led to the need for concerted action by central banks and governments to prevent the complete collapse of the global financial system. This eCourse describes the unfolding of this historic event, from the development of the crisis in the US to its spread across global markets and institutions. It also looks at how the authorities responded and the lessons to be learned for future generations.

- Identify the magnitude of the crisis as emphasised by the number and type of institutions, markets, and countries affected
- Recognise the causes of the crisis and the series of actions and events that created an operating environment within which many institutions would eventually run into difficulties
