Behind the News: Global Financial Crisis


This important title tackles the complex events that led up to the global financial crisis and recession of 2007 onward. Readers will weave their way through the differing causes and effects of the crisis and are encouraged to come to their own conclusions about global economic theories, the effects of globalization, and the income inequality between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population. Using case studies, debate sidebars, and critical-thinking questions, Global Financial Crisis offers perspectives on past and current economic situations, ultimately addressing the question: Is the current economic climate fair and stable, or are the world’s economies heading for another crash?
