Can a future financial crisis be prevented? It seems we keep repeating the same mistakes. Complex regulations, rewarding the too big to fail banks at the expense of community banks, lowering underwriting standards… if we continue the same policies a future financial crisis is inevitable.

Our experts believe that we blame the 2008 financial crisis on the private sector and let government off the hook. Yet our regulatory policies are skewed, allowing government to take risks that weaken the economy. A variety of key interest rates have been negative; imbalances, distortions need correction.
Risk assessment should not be made by government. We’ve set the conditions for a crisis.
The outcome agreed upon is we must do something different. Transparency, accountability, regulatory reform and free market solutions are imperative. Click & Tweet!
