Five surprising outcomes of the 2008 Financial Crisis
Gillian Tett's article in today's FT is a fantastic list of unintended consequences, failures of regulation, and the difficulty of curbing monopoly power. There are lots of great commentary pieces coming up this month, 'celebrating' the 10-year anniversary of the 2008 crash, which are going to be wonderful material for studying the A level topics of Financial Markets, in particular market failure in the financial sector, and the role of central banks.
This article should definitely be saved as a key resource to use, alongside the lead article in this week's Economist, "The world has not learned the lessons of the financial crisis".
The start of term might also be a good moment to note again the brilliant, free FT for Schools.
