Where will the next financial crisis come from? Are we ready to confront it?

The world is not yet completely out of the 2007- 2008 financial crisis, but the risk of a new crisis already arises. The theme of “regime shift” (volatility, interest rate, inflation, etc.) has resurfaced, which led to a marked correction in financial markets in January – February.

Economic history also teaches that financial crises are seldom anticipated, or more precisely, it teaches us that measures to avoid them have never been taken in time. In reality, crises have all been preceded by often very clear signals, but they have been ignored or underestimated (by regulators, by central banks, investors…).
