World Economy At Risk Of Another Financial Crash, IMF Warns

• zerohedge.com by Phillip Inman

The world economy is at risk of another financial meltdown, following the failure of governments and regulators to push through all the reforms  needed to protect the system from reckless behaviour, the International Monetary Fund has warned.

With global debt levels well above those at the time of the last crash in 2008, the risk remains that unregulated parts of the financial system could trigger a global panic, the Washington-based lender of last resort said.

Much has been done to shore up the reserves of banks in the last 10 years and to put in place more rigorous oversight of the financial sector, but "risks tend to rise during good times, such as the current period of low interest rates and subdued volatility, and those risks can always migrate to new areas", the IMF said, adding, "supervisors must remain vigilant to these unfolding events".
