The Financial Crisis and Recovery: Why so Slow? - September/October 2011

The Financial Crisis and Recovery: Why so Slow? - September/October 2011 | money money money | Scoop.it

"The U.S. economy has only very slowly recovered from the recession of 2007 to 2009. U.S. history provides no support for an explanation based on the financial crisis itself, although data on financial crises in some other countries appear to do so. The recent slow recovery is most similar to the Great Depression. Low aggregate demand for reasons unrelated to the financial crisis may be an explanation for both episodes, but uncertainty and government policies are an alternative supported by recent research on the Great Depression."

Gold Bugs Meet Bitcoin Believers to Supplant the Dollar - Bloomberg | money money money | Scoop.it

It’s what you get when you combine bitcoin, one of the world’s newest would-be currencies, and gold, one of the oldest.
