The 2008 financial crisis sent a shock across the world economy, slashing growth, raising unemployment, and forcing mass foreclosures on homes. As a result, many governments slashed spending, further plunging people into an economic abyss. In this eleventh lecture in INET’s “Economics For People” series, Ha-Joon Chang explains finance and financial crises.
