The financial crisis, used to justify the $700 billion Wall Street bailout approved by Congress and signed into law by President Bush on Friday, deepened dramatically Monday, as stock markets around the world registered massive losses in panic selling. It was the biggest global stock market crash since �Black Monday,� October 19, 1987, when exchanges around the world collapsed and the Dow Jones Industrial Average registered a loss of 22.6 percent, its largest ever single-day decline in percentage terms. On Monday, Europe suffered its worst-ever one-day drop in share prices, with the pan-European Stoxx 600 index falling 7.6 ...
has been taking place in an economic environment characterized by various imbalances and was sparked by the outbreak of the financial crisis of 2007–2010 . Although the late-2000s recession has at times been referred to as "the Great Recession ," this same phrase has been used to refer to every recession of the several preceding decades. 1 In July 2009, it was announced that a growing number of economists believed that the recession may have ended. 2 The financial crisis has been linked to reckless and unsustainable lending practices compounded by government intervention and the growing trend of securitization of real ...
Financial Warfare | The Global Sociology Blog
In this article, Hoogvelt argues that the deep cause of the financial crisis of 2008 has to do with globalized financialization spurred by technological innovation that made possible instantaneous trade and financial transactions. Similarly, the information revolution was central to the emergence of the securitization of markets: “The ascendancy of real time over clock time meant that the core dichotomy between capital and labour was fundamentally altered with capital operating in real time and labour continuing in clock time. As Castells put it, capital hence could escape into the hyper space  of pure circulation, while ... market research, surveys and trends
The crisis, financialization, and “cognitive capitalism” | khukuri
Christian Marazzi, whose recent book on the economic crisis is reviewed below, is one of those (like Antonio Negri, Paolo Virno, and others) who takes the theoretical legacy of the Italian autonomist struggles of the 1960s as a starting point. Often subsumed under the terms post-Fordist or post-workerist, the theory posits a new capitalist structural dynamic and a new political subject. This is the first review of a recent book that we’ve published, a genre that will hopefully become a little more common on this site. Francesca Bria teaches at the University of London and at the Catholic University in Rome. This review is ... market research, surveys and trends

IMF Survey: IMF Predicts Major Global Slowdown Amid Financial Crisis
he world economy is decelerating quickly—buffeted by an extraordinary financial shock and by still-high energy and commodity prices—and many advanced economies are close to or moving into recession, the IMF says in its latest World Economic Outlook (WEO). The October 2008 report , which was released two days prior to the IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings in Washington, said that growth in emerging economies is also weakening after years of strong growth, though it will still drive global growth. Speaking at the WEO press conference, IMF Chief Economist Olivier Blanchard emphasized the importance of implementing joint ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
New Australian PM put “on notice” by global markets
Little-reported comments by the newly-installed Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard have revealed more about the driving forces behind the political coup that ousted her predecessor, Kevin Rudd. Last Friday, after announcing her government’s capitulation to the demands of the giant global mining corporations over the Rudd government’s now-dumped mining “super profits” tax, Gillard told reporters that she was “on notice” that the world economy had entered a new round of fear and uncertainty. In her first remarks on the state of the economy, the new prime minister said that Treasurer Wayne Swan—who had just returned from the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
India's Stocks to Gain on Growth, Prudential Says
July 5 (Bloomberg) -- Indian stocks may gain 10 percent by the end of this year, extending the longest rally since 1979, as an unscheduled rate increase by the central bank won’t derail economic growth, Prudential Financial Inc. said. While stock indexes may drop in the three to four weeks after the rate decision, strengthening domestic demand may lure funds to equities, Prudential said. Higher lending rates may also boost the rupee, according to FirstRand Ltd., helping the currency recover from Asia’s second-biggest loss. “In the near-term, the latest rate hike is likely to have a negative impact on the Indian ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

FRB: Speech--Bernanke, Financial Reform to Address Systemic Risk ...
The world is suffering through the worst financial crisis since the 1930s, a crisis that has precipitated a sharp downturn in the global economy. Its fundamental causes remain in dispute. In my view, however, it is impossible to understand this crisis without reference to the global imbalances in trade and capital flows that began in the latter half of the 1990s. In the simplest terms, these imbalances reflected a chronic lack of saving relative to investment in the United States and some other industrial countries, combined with an extraordinary increase in saving relative to investment in many emerging market nations.

What are the Unknown Unknowns of Sovereign Systemic Risk? What's ...
The latest unknown unknown to manifest in the global financial markets is the growing potential of sovereign systemic risk. This is a concatenation of individual country risks infecting each other with unknown unknown consequences. Left unchecked, country risk becomes contagious and spreads to neighbouring countries as well as peer groups. Contagion can quickly spiral into systemic risk across a region. Up until now systemic risk arising from banking and financial services has continued to dominate the agenda of most global players -- corporate, government or NGO -- given the long shadow of The Great Unwind and The Great ...
