The definitive report on what caused America's economic meltdown— and who was responsible
The financial and economic crisis has touched the lives of millions of Americans who have lost their jobs and their homes, but many have little understanding of how it happened. Now, in this very accessible report, readers can get the facts.
Formed in May 2009, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC) is a panel of 10 commissioners with experience in business, regulations, economics, and housing, chosen by Congress to explain what happened and why it happened.
The global economy has been developing rapidly and gaining many achievements which have a lot
of motivating influences on the wealth of many countries in the recent decades. However, there still
remain a number of difficult problems that need proper solutions brought in by the governments.
Financial crisis is not out of the case. For many years now, financial crisis is deemed to offend so
many countries and people including economists, brokers, bankers, policy makers, and so on.

The European economy is in the midst of the deepest recession since the 1930s, with real GDP projected
to shrink by some 4% in 2009, the sharpest contraction in the history of the European Union. Although
signs of improvement have appeared recently, recovery remains uncertain and fragile. The EU’s response
to the downturn has been swift and decisive. Aside from intervention to stabilise, restore and reform the
banking sector, the European Economic Recovery Plan (EERP) was launched in December 2008.
As developing Asia rebounds from the global economic crisis ahead of
the rest of the world, the Asian Development Outlook 2010 (ADO 2010)
predicts growth exceeding 7% in the region this year and next. Although
that is still lower than the precrisis outcome of 9.6% in 2007, such a
healthy rebound, from a low of 5.2% in 2009, would be welcome.

By entering the East Asian economic model (EAEM) in the 1950s, the Thai economy was committed to the export-oriented, import-substituting low labour-cost manufacturing paradigm that Vietnam and Cambodia have more recently embraced. The EAEM provides for some success in expanding employment in the manufacturing sector and promoting income generation for its workers and, overall, in promoting national economic development.
Asia’s ongoing economic transformation has captured the world’s imagination.
Many marvel at the speed a diverse region packed with poverty has laid the
groundwork for future prosperity. They acknowledge the massive hurdles crossed
to get this far, but are nonetheless awed by those still to be surmounted. Asia’s
role in the world economy is growing, but so too are the challenges in keeping its
transformation on track.
The genesis of Asia’s transformation is critical. History is fundamental for
thinking about the future.

The OECD is developing a strategic response to the crisis focusing on two priority areas: finance,
competition and governance; and restoring long-term growth. As part of this strategic response, the
OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (DSTI) has analysed the likely impact of the
downturn on the drivers of long term economic growth and the innovation-related items in policy
responses of major countries.
The global economy is in a severe recession infl icted by
a massive fi nancial crisis and acute loss of confi dence.
While the rate of contraction should moderate from
the second quarter onward, world output is projected
to decline by 1.3 percent in 2009 as a whole and to
recover only gradually in 2010, growing by 1.9 percent.
Achieving this turnaround will depend on
stepping up efforts to heal the fi nancial sector, while
continuing to support demand with monetary and
fi scal easing.

timely, given that the severe financial crisis and resulting

and exchange rates by Ludwig von Mises appeared
between 1919 and1946. Here we have the evidence that

and the depression that followed.

The world is near the bottom of a global recession that is causing widespread business
contraction, increases in unemployment, and shrinking government revenues. Although recent
data indicate the large industrialized economies may have reached bottom and are beginning to
recover, for the most part, unemployment is still rising. Numerous small banks and households
still face huge problems in restoring their balance sheets, and unemployment has combined with
sub-prime loans to keep home foreclosures at a high rate.

The Panic of 1819 was America’s first great economic crisis and depression.
For the first time in American history, there was a crisis of nationwide scope that
could not simply and directly be attributed to specific dislocations and
restrictions-such as a famine or wartime blockades. Neither could it be simply
attributed to the machinations or blunders of one man or to one upsetting act of
government, which could be cured by removing the offending cause. In such a
way had the economic dislocations from 1808-15 been blamed on “Mr.
Jefferson’s Embargo” or “Mr. Madison’s War.
