Research and development scientist at Interface Biologics, Ian Parrag, works on development of an innovative drug delivery system in the lab in Toronto. It takes innovation to make economies grow. It takes other things too, things like entrepreneurship and capital and a somewhat supportive tax structure, but at the end of the day, you need sparkly new ideas to move the global economy forward. That's how it has gone for a few centuries now:
Increases in uncertainty[ edit ] Increases in uncertainty can depress investment, or consumption. The — recession represents the most striking episode of heightened uncertainty since The legislation gave HUD the power to set future requirements, and eventually under the Bush Administration a 56 percent minimum was established.
This is analogous to allowing many persons to buy insurance on the same house. Speculators that bought CDS protection were betting that significant mortgage security defaults would occur, while the sellers such as AIG bet they would not.
An unlimited amount could be wagered on the same housing-related securities, provided buyers and sellers of the CDS could be found. Several sources have noted the failure of the US government to supervise or even require transparency of the financial instruments known as derivatives.

Unlike the historical banking panics of the 19th and early 20th centuries, the current banking panic is a wholesale panic, not a retail panic. In the earlier episodes, depositors ran to their banks and demanded cash in exchange for their checking accounts.
Unable to meet those demands, the banking system became insolvent. The current panic involved financial firms "running" on other financial firms by not renewing sale and repurchase agreements repo or increasing the repo margin "haircut"forcing massive deleveraging, and resulting in the banking system being insolvent.
