What is unclear is had Mexico focused on a repayment plans via their own means resulting in financial stabilization or future financial unrest. Part of the preceding factors contributing to the accumulation of debt and bailout was due to large loans being made to private business sectors, investor insecurity due to “Zapatista Army of National Liberation declared war on the Mexican government…” (2016, Wikipedia) and Mexico’s fixed exchange rate. It is unclear had Mexico completed financial restricting if that would have absolved the countries citizens from experiencing a spike in poverty and hyperinflation. It would have avoided the country’s finances from being controlled by foreign banks but a benefit of Mexico’s economy being controlled by foreign banks was regaining investors’ confidence. Due to the preceding factors that contributed to Mexico’s financial crisis it appears the bailout was a correlation not a cause of the short term negative financial impacts on its citizens.
Always there are fluctuations in our graphs, but all fluctuations have own reasons such as world wars, depreciations and crises.

Now, if we take a look at political and economical situation in 80s ' world; there is no huge financial crises, oil crises gone over, Iran-Iraq war erupted that had some outcomes for oil market but that wasn 't important as oil crises, neo-classical approach became dominant opinion in economics therefore open door trade supported strongly by economic authorities, at the same time USSR lost the war in Afghanistan and collapsed in a few years, it means the decay of socialism. In brief, we can say that liberalism shone and socialism collapsed in 1980s. Therefore, inequality started to increase in 1980s and rally in 1990.
After the Great Depression, the Bretton Woods pact was not the only innovation, in fact in the US in 1933 had been approved the new legislation for banking, the Glass-Steagall act: the division between the commercial and investment banks. In order to alleviate the problem born in 1929 after the Stock Market Crash there were two acts entering into force. The first one, in 1932, made the Federal Reserve more powerful in control of the money supply. The second wanted to make safer the banking system.

The 1979 energy crisis plunged many countries into economic crisis (deVries, 1996).

It was not until the 1980’s that many of the plans established in the 30’s began to dissolve with the help of Congress.

With the fall of the Berlin wall, patriotism was at its all-time high and so was the housing market. Particularly because of the Garn-St. Germain Depository Institution Act evoked designed to improve affordability by doing so by deregulation of the banks that allowed flexibility with financing that included Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM). In the early 80’s home sales fell by half, which meant sales and permits for building home also drop to record lows.
The Savings and Loan Crisis: The defining features, the resultant deregulation, and its influence on the financial policy making. The U.S. economy's trajectory sketching the emergence of bank failures to the Savings and Loan crisis of the 1980s is attributable to the transformation of the U.S. financial system from being the one with a high degree of regulation to the one with huge deregulation. This process portrays the consequences that led to the crisis and further aggravated it. The magnitude of the crisis gave the U.S. economy a window to reform its banking industry post the crisis. The paper here traces the regulatory legislative framework in the U.S. before the crisis and how its transformation, overtime, accentuated the severity of
The Cause of Euro Crisis The Eurozone crisis was triggered by a combination of some complex factors that can be traced as far back as 2002.

Gordon 's premise in Hamilton 's Blessing is that the national debt can be used positively in order to boost the economy of a country like the United States. In the book, Gordon uses economic history and theory to examine the start, rise and decline of the United States debt. The author opens his book by stating that this country was born in debt, and this debt has become so high that concerned individuals no longer think about it. Hamilton 's Blessing charts the history of the national debt since when the central bank of the United States was founded in 1971, up to modern days. The intellectual architect of this creation was Alexander Hamilton, the first Treasury Secretary as well as a central figure who had a deep impact on the economic
(Johnston, 2015). However, countries that suffered a lot were concerned that if they do not devalue their currency it is impossible to get out of economic crisis. To address this issue, two institutions were established which were international monetary fund and the international bank for reconstruction and development. They were responsible for lending money to countries that face difficulties in reviving their economy and attracting financing g from other sources as well as supporting the growth of less developed and impoverished countries for recovering respectively. At last, the Bretton woods system did not survive because there is overvalue of the US dollar but it created a global
A prime example is the recent housing bubble which led to the financial crisis of 2008; however, we have limited knowledge of how bubbles arise and how they can be prevented. A bubble burst can have a devastating effect on the economy by plunging it into a recession. Some of the iconic historical bubbles are Tulip mania, dot-com bubble and housing bubble (2006). The three main causes of a bubble are government policies, greater fool theory and technological innovation. One of the main causes of a bubble is government policy, specifically
