Finance The financial sector has a profound influence on important macroeconomic variables like GDP growth, employment and inflation. The evolution of financial institutions has made the world’s economies more interconnected than ever, allowing financial “contagion” to spread out of control. In an eight- to ten-page paper (not including title and references pages), address the following:
- Describe recent financial crises and describe the effect that destabilized credit, mortgage, derivative, and insurance markets have had on national economies and assess the stabilization policies implemented to address them.
- Compare and contrast two different countries during a time period when they experienced financial crises.
- Explain the role and action that central banks took to stabilizing the business cycle. Be sure your answer includes appropriate data, graphs, terms, macroeconomic indicators and theories used.
- Indicate which country you believe implemented the best stabilization policy during the crises, supporting your selection with scholarly resources.
