All finance-based economies will experience occasional financial crises.
The most recent major financial crisis began in 2007 with the U.S. subprime mortgage crisis, and led to the bankruptcy of major banks including the Lehman Brothers in 2008.
This banking crisis hit economies throughout the world and even led to state bankruptcies. Some analysts, including Marc Faber, believe that the world economy still has not recovered from this crisis, and predict high inflation rates.
