Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


What exactly caused the global financial crisis of 2008 is hard to say, as bad subprime loans, deregulations and intransparent derivatives all have contributed towards what led the global economy into a time of great instability. The crisis announced its entry in Denmark with the collapse of Roskilde Bank which caused financial losses for many of it's customers, leading to social consequences for the city of Roskilde as unemployment rate rose, housing prices fell, etc. The concepts of Keynes’ governmental intervention by injections of capital into the financial sector, have proven successful in stabilizing the state economy. Through unstructured interviews conducted in the city centre of Roskilde, the failure of the bank has proven to have caused a general mistrust to the financial sector. Which can prove to have significant consequences on the economy if it were to continue to spread.
