What you’re reading is not a comprehensive guide to the global economic crisis.
It is a summary of some key themes and some of the key events in the crisis, which has engulfed many of the world’s biggest economies since 2009.
But it is essential reading for anyone working in the field of finance.
The global financial system The world’s financial system is an interconnected web of trillions of dollars in assets that all operate according to strict guidelines that are set by a vast network of banks and regulators, whose role is to ensure that these assets are properly managed and protected.
But the global system is also riddled with holes, and there is a growing sense of unease about how far the system has been stretched.
Inflation The cost of living has been on the rise in recent years, particularly in developed countries.
This has led to an increase in the price of goods and services, with some economists arguing that the rise is unsustainable and the economy has become too reliant on debt-financed asset bubbles.
In the United States, the rise of the debt-based asset bubble has resulted in a sharp drop in consumer spending and an increase of borrowing in the housing market.
This is creating a financial bubble in many cities that could quickly burst.
But there is little evidence that this is the case in other developed countries, and economists say the situation is unlikely to become as dire as some experts feared.
The debt bubble and the housing bubble In a recent report for the IMF, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the World Trade Organisation, economists wrote that “inflation expectations have deteriorated considerably since the onset of the crisis”.
The IMF noted that the inflation rate in the United Kingdom is at its lowest level since the early 1980s, while in Australia, it is lower than it was before the global crisis.
This could have an impact on growth.
A recent survey of economists found that only two of them expected inflation to accelerate in the coming year, while another predicted a rise of 0.5 per cent.
The IMF said the rise was likely to be “large enough to dampen the economic growth potential of the economy and slow economic growth”.
Inflation is a key risk to the economy, as it could trigger a downturn in investment, which would damage the economy in the long term.
Rising unemployment and a fall in productivity The main causes of the recent global economic woes are low wages, low productivity and the growing gap between rich and poor.
These problems are compounded by the growing inequality between countries, which is one of the reasons why inequality has risen sharply in recent decades.
In countries such as China, Japan and South Korea, where workers are paid less, they are not able to afford the higher living costs of living in developed economies, such as the United Sates.
But even in countries like France, Italy and Germany, where there are more workers, living standards are higher than they were a decade ago, and wages have increased at a faster rate.
This means that the incomes of many workers in these countries have become less than those of their parents, who made the same amount of money.
In some cases, workers’ incomes have stagnated in these advanced economies.
The OECD, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, has forecast that by 2020, a third of the global workforce will be aged under 30, with the share of those in this age group who are employed falling from 62 per cent to 58 per cent over the next 10 years.
Meanwhile, there is increasing social and political unrest in the developed world, which can be linked to rising inequality.
The political upheaval and economic disruption that have resulted from the financial crisis has led many countries to enact austerity measures, including cutting public services, reducing pensions and cutting benefits.
But inequality is not limited to poor countries.
In fact, in a report for a group of European economists called the Financial Times, they pointed out that in the last five years, inequality has soared in Germany, Britain, the United Arab Emirates, Italy, France, Spain and Greece.
The researchers said that in some countries, inequality is growing at the expense of the middle class.
In France, for example, a study by the European Centre for Policy Research found that between 2006 and 2011, the middle classes of the five most-populous countries saw their share of income fall by 3 per cent, while the poorest fifth saw their income rise by 6 per cent or more.
In many countries, these changes have not been reflected in the level of income inequality.
A lack of regulation, which allows for financial speculation and corruption in many countries that have grown rich through the global boom, has fuelled the rise.
The rise in inequality and a lack of political will to tackle the problem have created a situation where financial institutions, regulators and central banks are being left to make decisions about how to handle the crisis.
The crisis has also created an environment in which governments are being forced to spend billions of dollars to support the poor.
In several countries, such measures have been implemented through the use of taxpayer-funded tax cuts
