World of Finance
As promised here is the series I was talking about in my previous posts regarding the world of Finance. I have always been fascinated by it and that is why I did my bachelors and masters in finance. And if you have been frequent reader of my blog, you may have come across many articles regarding what is happening in financial world. But with this series, there will be more frequency to posts and more articles. I always read financial articles of interest and it is not confined to one magazine but several ones. And even if people want to avoid the news, they are drawn to it since it sometimes becomes the most prominent news of the day or even days. And who would forget the financial crisis of the year 2008 with two major investment banks closing and the great recession setting in throwing many people (including I) onto the unemployment line. The financial news have always been with us, be it with the Great Depression or other recessions and the financial problems of other countries but the difference is that before the internet, we had to rely on the Television and print media to inform us of the happenings in the financial world and sometimes we had to wait for a day or two to get the full news story and the impact was not felt immediately. But with the internet, we get our news as it is unfolding and the impact on our lives is much faster and instantaneous.
