In this report we mainly focused on how the FG (financial globalization) has been making the world economy increasingly unstable and volatile as time has gone by. First, we explained how financial liberalization has proceeded in the US, and saw how the world financial system has become unstable and vulnerable, leading up to the instability of the world economy, as a result of the FG. Then we reflected what the FG has implied in relation to the world economy.
