The Financial Crisis: One Year Later

This paper is meant to provide a fresh retrospective on the events shaping the evolution of the financial crisis and economic recession since last year. While continuing and updating last year's analysis, the author offers an assessment of the three potential scenarios through which the crisis could have evolved. This update on the crisis derives from a reflection, sometimes a criticism, of the key players' role in both the causes and the solutions. Those are the governments, central banks, regulators, financial institutions, and their directors. It is from this retrospective analysis that the author can conclude by sharing his impression regarding future developments of the economy and the financial sector.
