Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Law - Civil / Private / Trade / Anti Trust Law / Business Law, grade: 13 Punkte, University of Augsburg (Uni-Augsburg / Pepperdine University (Malibu, Kalifornien)), course: Seminar Frauenchiemsee July 18. 2008 to July 20. 2008, language: English, abstract: The work is about the current subprime and financial crisis in Amerika being the trigger for the following global economic crash/depression since 2008.
