1. Stakes of Financial Crisis
The stakes of a financial crisis are catastrophic. Global markets turn tricky, runaway inflation ensues, and public populations are impacted severely as they’re pushed into poverty. Surviving a financial collapse can require massive backroom balancing acts and extremely risky investment maneuvers. The risk of not surviving the crisis unscathed is high, especially considering the potential for government policy shifts and other domestic or geopolitical shifts that could spark overt panic.
Unfortunately, those with fewer resources are usually the hardest hit during a financial crisis. Political, economic, and social divides tend to widen as people of lesser financial positions hunt for options to make ends meet. The sheer volume of unpredictable factors like these is what presents the most risk for those with money invested.

After months of uncertainty and a recent surge of the banking crisis, it’s hard to say whether the global economy is at risk of a major collapse. Now more than ever, it’s up to fiscal experts, financial advisors, bankers, and investors to work together to prevent any further economic disruption. Regardless of the outcome, one thing is certain: the future of the global economy depends on our ability to ensure financial stability for years to come.
