YPFS Research Guides

The Global Financial Crisis  (GFC) was the most significant world economic event since the Great Depression. Our Research Guides are designed to help anyone interested in the Global Financial Crisis begin to learn more about it. The guides (i) identify key issues relating to the major topics of the crisis, and (ii) direct you to useful sources in the YPFS Resource Library or elsewhere, which you can in most cases, access via a hyperlink.  In this way, the guides are intended to be easily accessible resources that can be consulted for future research papers, discussions, special projects, and or curriculum modules.
