The year 2016 has hardly begun and the losses in different stock markets around the world care colossal: nearly 8 trillion US dollars during the first three weeks of January according to the calculations of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The Government of the United States made addicts of investment banks of policies of cheap credit. And now that the System of the Federal Reserve ended their monetary stimuli the whole world is paying the consequences. In the most recent Davos summit it was noted that there is much uncertainty among big businesses: no one knows when the next crisis will explode.
A financial tremor left the Davos club sunk in pessimism. Over 2 000 businessmen and political leaders met in Switzerland (from January 20 to 23rd) and do not really know how to convince the people of the world that the economy is under control. A few days after the XLVI edition of the World Economic Forum, the investors panicked: over the first three weeks of January different stock markets lost 7.8 trillion US dollars, according to the estimates of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
