The Global Financial Crisis During the Years 2008 and 2009

Charles Needham, Maria Needham


During a global financial crisis, the exchange rate reacts to economic conditions in a volatile manner. During the financial crisis between 2008 and 2009, the exchange rate incurred losses of individual countries' overall currency value. The losses occurred because of the lack of confidence in investors. The losses affected the banking and financial institutions, collapsing the housing market. The purpose was to explore existing research on the great financial crisis that affected the world and compare countries with the largest economic influences in the world. The study is grounded in the fact that this crisis disrupted the banking system worldwide, causing several major financial institutions, such as commercial banks, mortgage firms, insurance agencies, and credit unions, to fail. In addition to the financial industry, many large and small businesses failed to survive during the Great Financial Crises. The data came from sources such as scholarly literature from sources related to the causes and effects of the financial crises. The literature reflected behavior patterns and purposes that disrupted the global economy used by various countries. This research reflected that government leaders respond proactively and collaborate and share ideas, information, and resources to prevent a financial crisis of this magnitude from happening again. Bank managers must provide records publicly and promptly. As the United States, China, and Japan represent the largest economies, the U.S. governmental leaders must align with Japan to encourage China to support a global collaboration between the other global leaders to ensure sterner banking regulations. Consequently, this study could lead to a more stable global economy to prevent a future disaster of this magnitude.
