How to avoid the Financial Crisis


The main topic is about the Financial Crisis. People becoming homeless... banks becoming bankrupt...people owing debt... So I've decided to write a post about some of my ways to avoid another Financial Crisis.

How we can avoid a Financial Crisis:

1. The government could influence more people to work for them. Doing jobs which could not also help avoid the financial crisis, but also help the envoionment. (Binmen, Doctors, etc.)

2. People should look out for other people if they're over-spending or wasting money. (You could waste money with betting or buying things you don't need, e.g. super expensive games.)

3. Banks should be smarter in checking that people who they loan to would definiteley be able to pay them back that monthly or yearly fee they were assigned to.

4. Family and friends could help each other by giving out small amounts of money if someone's in need. You might not even need to be repayed as you'd give out of kindness

5. People need to be able to spread knowledge by telling people points like these so that more people know what to do if in need or someone they know is in need. Or so that possibly the government might happen to hear these things so they hire more people etc.

These are a few points I thought of and I'd be happy to hear what other ways people can avoid a Financial Crisis in the comments below!

    Well done for giving original ideas here, you have shown great curiosity, especially in weeks one and two of the new Issue!

    I'm going to set everyone a challenge. Can you show one of the BNC skills and be sceptical about these suggestions? But it's important to be sceptical about suggestions you hear. If you are sceptical it means you challenge something or ask for more evidence of information - you don't just accept that something is true. This isn't to say it isn't a good post, because it is!

    For example, I'm sceptical that family and friends could stop another financial crisis, because I think the banking system overall has much more power and responsibility than individual people.

    What do you think? It would also be great to hear some counter-arguments to the challenges too!

    Energetic conversation your first way to prevent a final crisis is making me think again if more people are going to get importanter job more qualifications but the GCSE s are getting harder and pupils are trying harder . Not every one can certainly succeed.

      For some jobs the government pay you for you don't need to be smart to do them... e.g. binmen.

    I think you are absolutely right, this could help people with financial crisis

    I think you are totally right this could help avoid the financial crisis a lot but do you have any back up plans just in case these amazing solutions you've mentioned don't work?

    I completely agree with you however I would like to mention and add a few things. To start with on your first comment you mentioned that the government should try to influence more people to come and work for them. If they where to do this then there could be some problems as some jobs like working in a shop would not be filled and there might not be enough positions for people to fill so they might end up jobless which would not be very good.

    Also on your second point you mentioned that people should watch out for over spending. I completely agree with this because lots of people overspend and lots of people do not even realise and then get a bill just getting bigger and bigger.

    For your fourth point you explained that family and friends could help people by giving small amounts of money for those in need. This could cause problems as those in need might be living off small bouts of kindness and not doing enough to help themselves and you might have worked really hard for that money. I think that it was a great idea but I am not overly sure that it would work.

    I completely agree with your 5th point. I think the main thing that the government could do along side banks is to spread awareness about the financial crisis because most people have never heard of it and those that have might not fully understand it.

      An excellent response which shows great scepticism, where you have challenged the other BNC member and given reasons why!

      For your third paragraph you mentioned that family members shouldn't give money to others in need as they need to fend for themselves. In my point of view the family members gave a little money as a boost. I'd expect the person to earn the rest of the money themselves. I know I said you might not be repaid but after they start earning a proper amount of money they probably will anyway. If they didn't pay it back and wouldn't really expect family members to give THOUSANDS as that might be a problem. If it were like that I'd agree with your point, though that's NOT what I meant and I'm therefore contradicting you.
      I hope this causes a slight change to your perspective.

    I think you can avoid this by giving your money to the bank and by not being greedy when the bank gives you money because the bank could and can go bankrupt.

    how you can avoid it again is the banks don't give u to much money and the people who are borrowing the money don't ask for a lot

    If families keep giving each other money then everyone could run out, especially if the money (if on purpose or buy accident) is not used on a good cause and if you are in urgent need you might not get the money in time.

    I think the bank should be more careful with what they are giving out and not trust as many people then they would not have this crisis and there will not be any more problems.

    very good tips but why would they work what if they don't work?

      My first point would work because if there was a Financial Crisis people wouldn't be losing their jobs as the government would provide the money for them to be paid. My second would most probably be out of choice and would depend on if your family members cared for you. Most parents would be there to help out. If not there would be a wide variety of friends to depend on if you're lucky. Or you could just make the right choices out of your own decisions. My third point would need to depend on The Bank of England (TBE) and maybe my fifth point. As the 'TBE' would need to be stricter and most people are already demanding for this. I'll be writing a post about that soon. My fourth point would be very similar in answer as my third and I've written a bit about it in other comments. on this post. By writing this post I have already started with point five by writing it down for everyone in BNC to see.

    I personally agree with you because:
    1. The Binmen and doctors and others don't really suffer much with the Financial Crisis because they get paid by the Government.
    2. The people with businesses have a higher risk of getting hit by this chaotic crisis.
    This is why I think you are correct and understand your point of view it really made me see your perspective of this issue and more ideas on how to stop/prevent it.

    I really enjoyed your ideas about how to stop a financial crisis. Please proceed to make more! Maybe you could cover brexit?!
