The Financial Collapse of 2001 Unwinding

Emcee:  elmatador Type:  Moderated
Aftermath of the dotcom bubble. Financial Collapse ensued. Greenspan flooded the market resulting in the real estate bubble. That cause another financial crisis of 2008. That prompted Quantitative Easing (QE) for 5 years until Janet Yellen pulled the plug in which became known as the Taper Tantrum.

The US could afford stopping QE not so Europe, Japan and China which are still doing it.
Today, the world economy deals with these excesses as well as the changes in China which moves to a much slower GDP growth and move into higher valued added products.

The aim of this thread is to serve as a center of discussions of these major issues. Although we have had a thread dedicated to this theme, it has deteriorated into a reality show of the US political system which is not what this new thread is all about.

While the old Financial Collapse thread suffer from weak leadership and poor moderation this one will be kept clean of political shenanigans.
