Helane Morrison’s Consistent Fight for Balance in the Corporate Sector03.17.16

The 2007-2008 financial crises served as an eye opener to the underhand deals and corruption in the corporate world. People were shocked as companies and banks that were thought to be reputable crushed. The crisis caused stock markets to collapse and unemployment to increase too. 

Investigations done post-crisis revealed falsified and destroyed documents plus false audit claims. People’s faith in the corporate world and banks was lost. Insecurity and mistrust of the corporate world set in. Unfortunately, the feeling of mistrust is still evident after nine years. According to a study done by Wall Street Journal, only 28% of the citizens think the economy is set on the right track. Moreover, investors and economist predict that the feeling of instability is unlikely to improve due to the upcoming 2016 election.

According to Yale Hirsch the founder of Hirsch organization, there is a correlation between presidential election, stock markets and the economy. Evidently, stock markets have been known to slow down as investors wait to see the impact of the election and the organization of the fiscal policy thereafter.
