this chapter will also conclude on the validity of the credit expansion mispricing of mortgage risk hypothesis to explain the 2007 global financial crisis. overall the changes described in detail in the report reveal not only that public economic support of universities is diminishing but also changing in the nature and form in which it is available16. [perhaps the 2007 global financial crisis will help bridge the gap between economics and political science?@gsafluostauthor information ► copyright and license information ►copyright 2011, hippokratio general hospital of thessalonikiabstractthe european union (eu) and the world are faced with unprecedented economic challenges, which if allowed to persist could threaten its continued existence in its current form as a union. the eua monitoring has been able to identify 5 main categories which show the effect of the economic crisis on public funding of universities across europe. the economic dimension relates to the sub-systems of production and distribution of resources within societies. solutions: from a brief analysis of the effect of the financial crisis on conducting clinical research and development, it is obvious that it is not simply a matter of adequate funding.
is against this background that the 2007 global financial crisis must be analyzed. in describing the chronology of the crisis, the proposed study will review and include, where applicable, primary data related to the crisis, and conduct interviews with some key individuals affiliated with financial firms that experienced the unfolding of the financial crisis first hand. identity: a potential obstacle to a joint response to the financial crisis and how this affects the performance of clinical research, is the fact that the eu represents a diverse group of people with different social, cultural and political backgrounds, which do not necessarily have the "common cause" motivation seen among different groups in the us. economists [and political scientists] need to reach out from their specialised silos: macroeconomists must understand finance, [political scientists must understand macroeconomics], and finance professors need to think harder about the context within which markets work. the proposal will end with a chapter outline and a time frame for the proposed study. since the 2007 global financial crisis is a very recent phenomenon that is still unfolding, there is very limited academic literature on the topic. it is outside the study’s purview to explore these debates in depth; however, i share the current criticism of contemporary economic theories relative to the financial crisis, and the proposed study will argue that part of the problem is the shortage of political economic theory – requiring moving away from the narrow focus on the modes of production and distribution only.

(2000) uses minsky’s model and broadens it in his model of financial crisis. the proposed study’s vantage point the academic discipline to which the 2007 global financial crisis adheres is political economy. the global savings glut was caused by a shifting of investments away from asian countries in the aftermath of the 1997 asian financial crisis; by the accelerated increase in the price of oil, creating massive surpluses of petrodollars; and by the currency management system of some countries, specifically china, creating dollar surpluses in an effort by “currency pegging” countries to keep the value of their currencies artificially low vis-à-vis the us dollar. 2007 global financial crisis is a phenomenon that occurred within the world’s system of resource allocation. one could even make the case that the proper name for the discipline should be “political economics,” with political science and economic science the sub-disciplines. issues of subjectivity in describing the crisis will be discussed in this chapter. [what are the proper roles of government and government institutions in managing systemic crisis?
kindleberger (2000:207) argues that a lender of last resort seems to shorten the business depression or recession that follows a financial crisis. ultimately, the importance of this study lies in making a small contribution to the way the crisis is perceived. government or central bank decisions to act as lenders of last resort to defuse a crisis are essentially political questions. crisis reignited a debate about the role of the state in markets.: european union, financial crisis, clinical research, reviewin order to approach the issue of conducting research at a time of financial crisis, this paper will list first some of the problems identified, as well as some confounding factors. mere fact that mortgage loans were securitized and sold throughout an integrated global financial system could not in and of itself cause the credit crisis. the key economic exchange is the negotiations between bankers and businesspeople.
