About the Book
The financial crisis of 2008 brought the world to a standstill. Banks and financial firms all over the world had to be rescued by governments – in effect, bailed out by the taxpayer. But have things changed post 2008? Are financial firms and banks operating more responsibly? Are they taking fewer risks than they did in the past? What will happen as and when the next financial crisis hits us? Vivek Kaul answers these and many more questions on how the global financial system is operating in the post-financial-crisis era in the third book in the Easy Money series.Over the last decade, Indian banks in general and the government-owned public sector ones in particular have gradually got themselves into a big mess. Their bad loans, or loans which haven’t been repaid for ninety days or more, crossed Rs 10 lakh crore as of 31 March 2018.
