In these trying economic times very few are immune from the adverse impacts of the global financial crisis and the denigration of the world economy.
There was a point in time when individual countries were somewhat sheltered from global financial trends because of internal checks and balances and economies that were more localized. With the advent of the Internet and the integration of all financial markets much more closely the impacts on local economies by global financial trends has been much more acute. Traders are not immune from these impacts and can have serious consequences on an individual’s livelihood.
The failure by the United States and other western powers along with European and Asian economic giants to implement much broader economic solutions to the global financial crisis is adversely impacting the trader. Band aid solutions such as government financed bailouts and stimulus packages do not strengthen an individual country’s economy but only serves to artificially prop it up and thus make the longer term impacts much more detrimental upon the trader.
Due to the superficial band aid solutions the world’s stock markets become overinflated with a false sense of security. Massive debt being incurred by world powers in the hands of a few will surely become a festering wound that will have to be dealt with sooner than later. Traders will be caught in the middle of a crisis not of their doing. If concrete solutions are not implemented soon, there could be very grave consequences befalling the world economy.
