End of the road: how money became worthless
In 2008, the world experienced one of the biggest financial upheavals in modern history. Markets around the world began to crumble, share prices plummeted and major financial institutions, once considered invincible, began to show signs of collapse. Governments responded quickly, issuing massive bailouts and stimulus packages in an effort to keep the world economy afloat. Although we have reported that these drastic measures have prevented the total collapse of our system, a sense of unease grips the population. In the world of finance, indeed in every facet of modern life, cracks have begun to appear. What lies ahead as a result of these bold money-printing measures? Has the financial crisis been resolved or have the problems merely been dismissed?
