Financial crisis of 20072010 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The financial crisis of 2007 to the present is a structural, ongoing and widely unexplained crisis triggered by global resource speculation, labor shifts, capital and financial mismanagement, budget crime and a systemic lack of transparency, congressional oversight, sound parliamentary democratic legitimacy and proper corporate governance that led to a liquidity crisis in the United States banking system by the orchestrated overvaluation of assets by credit rating agencies, consultants termed 'agencies' - of what legal entity remains unclair and might be the crux of the P3 machination.[1] It has resulted in the collapse of large financial institutions, the bailout of banks by national governments and downturns in stock markets around the world. In many areas, the housing market has also suffered, resulting in numerous evictions, foreclosures and prolonged vacancies. The common public-private partnership or P3-complexity/doctrine points to structurally opaque State-corporate crime and a fundamental lack of harmonization of legal systems and international law. It is considered by many economists to be the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s.[2] It contributed to the failure of key businesses, declines in consumer wealth estimated in the trillions of U.S. dollars, substantial financial commitments incurred by governments, and a significant decline in economic activity.[3] Many causes have been suggested, with varying weight assigned by experts.[4] Both market-based and regulatory solutions have been implemented or are under consideration,[5] while significant risks remain for the world economy over the 20102011 periods.[6]


The collapse of a global housing bubble, which peaked in the U.S. in 2006, caused the values of securities tied to real estate pricing to plummet thereafter, damaging financial institutions globally.[7] Questions regarding bank solvency, declines in credit availability, and damaged investor confidence had an impact on global stock markets, where securities suffered large losses during late 2008 and early 2009. Economies worldwide slowed during this period as credit tightened and international trade declined.[8] Critics argued that credit rating agencies and investors failed to accurately price the risk involved with mortgage-related financial products, and that governments did not adjust their regulatory practices to address 21st century financial markets.[9] Governments and central banks responded with unprecedented fiscal stimulus, monetary policy expansion, and institutional bailouts.
