Financial Crisis 10 Years On. Has the Response to the Last Crisis Laid the Foundations for the Next?
What: IMF/World Bank Spring Meetings Panel
Since 2008, IFIs, the G20, governments, and central banks have embarked on a reform agenda that was supposed to fix the old crises and prevent the next. Measures ranged from bank bailouts and quantitative easing to partial financial sector reform. While the impact of the old crisis is still being felt, there are already signs of the next. At the same time, the pace of financialization of the global economy keeps increasing, under the added pressure of wide-scale promotion of large infrastructure investments and related public-private partnerships.
