  Anti crisis Measures

The current economic crisis, generally considered the world’s worst since the 1930s, has left a trail of destruction in its wake. Terms such as austerity plans and fiscal adjustments have become buzz words in the economic press while governments across the world have been left with little choice but to adopt anti-crisis measures – often including quite brutal interventions in the economy that would be near-impossible to justify in normal conditions.

What is more, the ongoing process of globalization has meant that the effects of the crisis have been felt far more widely, affecting almost all corners of the world economy. One major result of this has been the expanded role of regional and international economic organizations such as the EC, the OCDE and the IMF in diagnosing problems and prescribing remedies.

Below is a list of some excellent sources for learning more about how our respective countries, regions and the world, as a whole, might successfully address the underlying problems and finally pull out of the crisis:
