Assignment 1: Discussionâ€”Global Stock Market and Exchange Rate Fluctuations
Financial crises have short-term and long-term effects. However, most often analysts are focused only on short-term effects. In this assignment, you will be challenged to look for short-term and long-term effects and to compare the effects of two financial crises: one from 1997 and one from 2007.

Then, do the following:
- Evaluate each financial crisis in terms of its impact on the international financial markets.

- How did the major currencies react during each crisis?
- What are the lessons to be learned from each crisis?
