The US housing meltdown and global financial crisis of 2007-2008 has morphed into the euro debt and banking crisis in 2010 following the global economic downturn of 2009. Rising fiscal deficits and debt-GDP ratios have led three countries in the euro zone to accept bailouts from the EC and the IMF while others are teetering on the edge of fiscal implosion. This crisis is threatening the European banking system and Europe's common currency with collapse with severe implications for Europe, North America and the global economy.
This webinar is aimed at financial professionals, wealth managers, bankers, traders, corporate managers and board members as well as the general public.
