When the government has a high amount of debt it reduces government spending and budgeting. The less the government spends, the more unemployment levels rise. When unemployment levels rise the government has to spend more on welfare which is money spent with no productive aspects. This is a vicious cycle that is often repeated in many countries around the world because their currencies are linked with the US dollar. A country accumulates debt when the government’s expenditures exceed its income during a financial year.
The causes of the stock market crash were overpriced stocks, margin buying, federal reserve policy, and public official’s repeated statements. Many people believe the stock shares were priced too high and the crash brought it down back to a normal level. The new President of the Federal Reserve Board Adolph Miller tightened the monetary policy and set out to lower the stock prices since he perceived that speculation led stocks to be overpriced, causing damage to the economy. Also, starting from the beginning of 1929, the interest rate charged on broker loans rose tremendously. This policy reduced the amount of broker loans that originated from banks and lowered the liquidity of non-financial and other corporation that financed brokers and dealers.

Even though there was an abundance of goods mass produced and at a cheap price because of that, so many people now had no jobs so the goods were not being purchased. Even though, from 1920 to 1929, consumerism and overproduction partially caused the Great Depression, the unequal distribution of wealth and income was the most significant catalyst. From 1920 to 1929 consumerism partially caused the Great Depression due to speculation and installment buying. Speculation is the act of investing in a stock with the hope of a big gain but the risk of a big loss. Many of the investors were sure that the stocks they were going to buy were going to grow, therefore they received big loans that, once the market crashed and all the money was gone, they could never pay b... ... middle of paper ... ...e excessive speculation in the late 1920's kept the stock market artificially high, but inevitably led to the big crash.
Economic Conditions of Japan Japan is currently in an economic recession. We can see that the value of the yen is falling; unemployment is rising, and purchasing of durable goods is down. This unhealthy state of economy has progressively become bleaker over the years. Many believe that the start of the slump was due to the economic bubble in the late 1980’s when low rates encouraged an inordinately large amount of investment. When a country has an elevated investment rate, large amounts of capital stock are purchased.
With the continuation of the declining price, Australia would have a difficult struggle to pay for its imports and repayment of loans. Australia was affected so severely as its primary source of income was taken away. Employees in public works, building and construction lost their jobs, as loans were no longer being funded for these projects. This also reduced the demand for goods produced in other industries. Australia's workmen had a severe lost of jobs and wages.
The impact of the Global Financial Crisis on unemployment levels As a consequence of the global downturn, jobs in Australia held the most devastating impact with employment contracting over 2009-10 and labour markets deteriorating rapidly with millions joining the jobless trend globally. The unemployment rate is expected to peak at 8.5% in 2010-11 before falling as the economy recovers. This is because as the demand for labour is a derived demand, when economic growth declines, so too will the demand for labour as consumer spending will deteriorate and businesses defer investment plans. As well as unemployment, there was also a shift towards the casualisation of labour. As the economic outlook became uncertain and demand and output delayed, employers seek casual and part-time workers to manage risk, leaving many of those who remained employed working fewer hours over the short term increasing levels of underemployment.
This also caused a decline in reserves in 2008. Malaysia’s high level of reserves had slow down during the periods of huge reversals in short term flows. Moreover, the financial crisis 2008 had impacted the foreign exchange rate. Capital flows had significant impacted on the Malaysian Ringgit since de-pegging from US dollar. Capital outflows depress the price of ringgit in the way of declining the demand in exports and portfolio capital outflows.
The International Financial Crisis in 1929 Throughout the 1920's in Britain there were economic problems. Unemployment was increasing; therefore there was low domestic demand and large amounts of poverty. Markets were also being lost abroad, leading to a decrease in trade. However in 1929-31 these problems reached crisis point, when in 1929 The Wall Street Crash called for an end of American Loans to Britain, and the re-call of all Britain's debt. This had impact worldwide, as prices for goods slumped due to lack of demand and business confidence disappeared.
