The Financial Crisis and what it means for you
The financial crisis that has overwhelmed banks, stock markets and
governments around the world seemed, to many, to come out of nowhere. But it
has its roots in policies and financial innovations going back several
decades, to the breakdown of the previous global financial system amid the
inflation and mass unemployment of the 1970s. The current crisis is likely
to have equally profound implications for individuals, families and business
and for the way in which the economy will be managed in the future.
It is too early to tell for sure what these implications will be, but John
Quiggin will have a go anyway.
John Quiggin is a Federation Fellow in Economics and Political Science at
the University of Queensland. He is prominent both as a research economist
and as a commentator on Australian economic policy. He has published over
750 research articles, books and reports, and he has been an active
contributor to Australian public debate. He is a regular columnist for the
Australian Financial Review and he frequently comments on policy issues for
radio and TV. Since 2002, he has published a weblog (johnquiggin.com)
providing daily comments on a wide range of topics.
