French Financial Crisis (2008-2009)
There is very little academic literature available about the current economic crisis and its social impacts in France. This report includes some relevant articles from the news media. More literature is available relating to the unrest seen in , and as some of that material may be relevant to the current situation a small selection has been included. Unemployment and financial hardship resulting from the global economic crisis have contributed to strikes, demonstrations, and other forms of protest in France in and French activists have developed strong capacities for action through alliances with a range of groups although there are some concerns about the risk of extreme radical organisations subverting legitimate political protest and have been able to mobilise significant political forces. Between one million and two and a half million people took part in demonstrations across the country in January of this year, and as many as three million people took part in demonstrations in March, with broad popular support.
Great Recession , economic recession that was precipitated in the United States by the financial crisis of —08 and quickly spread to other countries. Beginning in late and lasting until mid, it was the longest and deepest economic downturn in many countries, including the United States, since the Great Depression — c. The financial crisis, a severe contraction of liquidity in global financial markets, began in as a result of the bursting of the U. When interest rates finally began to climb in , demand for housing, even among well-qualified borrowers, declined, causing home prices to fall.

Financial crisis of —08 , also called subprime mortgage crisis , severe contraction of liquidity in global financial markets that originated in the United States as a result of the collapse of the U. It threatened to destroy the international financial system; caused the failure or near-failure of several major investment and commercial banks , mortgage lenders, insurance companies, and savings and loan associations ; and precipitated the Great Recession —09 , the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression — c. Although the exact causes of the financial crisis are a matter of dispute among economists, there is general agreement regarding the factors that played a role experts disagree about their relative importance. First, the Federal Reserve Fed , the central bank of the United States, having anticipated a mild recession that began in , reduced the federal funds rate the interest rate that banks charge each other for overnight loans of federal funds—i. Consumers took advantage of the cheap credit to purchase durable goods such as appliances, automobiles, and especially houses. Second, owing to changes in banking laws beginning in the s, banks were able to offer to subprime customers mortgage loans that were structured with balloon payments unusually large payments that are due at or near the end of a loan period or adjustable interest rates rates that remain fixed at relatively low levels for an initial period and float, generally with the federal funds rate, thereafter. As long as home prices continued to increase, subprime borrowers could protect themselves against high mortgage payments by refinancing, borrowing against the increased value of their homes, or selling their homes at a profit and paying off their mortgages.
A financial crisis The functioning of one or more financial markets or intermediaries becomes erratic or ceases altogether. A nonsystemic crisis A particular market or intermediary functions erratically or inefficiently. A systemic crisis The functioning of all, or nearly all, of the financial system degrades. Financial crises are neither new nor unusual. Thousands of crises, including the infamous Tulip Mania and South Sea Company episodes, have rocked financial systems throughout the world in the past five hundred years. Two such crises, in — and , helped lead to the American Revolution.
Developing countries were hit hard by the financial and economic crisis, although the impact was somewhat delayed. Every country had different challenges to master. The closer the developing countries are interconnected with the world economy, the crasser the effects. And the incipient recovery that is becoming noticeable is, for the time being, restricted to only a few countries and regions. The crisis was transmitted primarily by trade and financial flows forcing millions back into poverty. Attainment of the Millennium Development Goals is seriously jeopardised in many countries. Many developing countries did not and do not have the resources to stimulate the economy and protect their socially disadvantaged populations to the same extent as the industrialised countries.

That trapped homeowners who couldn't afford the payments, but couldn't sell their house. When the values of the derivatives crumbled, banks stopped lending to each other. Bank lobbyists said they needed this change to compete with foreign firms.
Many factors directly and indirectly caused the Great Recession that started in with the US subprime mortgage crisis. The major causes of the initial subprime mortgage crisis and following recession include the Federal Reserve lowering the Federal funds rate and creating a flood of liquidity in the economy, international trade imbalances, and lax lending standards contributing to high levels of developed country household debt and real-estate bubbles that have since burst; U. Once the recession began, various responses were attempted with different degrees of success. These included fiscal policies of governments; monetary policies of central banks; measures designed to help indebted consumers refinance their mortgage debt; and inconsistent approaches used by nations to bail out troubled banking industries and private bondholders, assuming private debt burdens or socializing losses.
