Literature Review: Finance problem for Economy

This “Ten Problems for Economy in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. business, 
  2. finance,
  3. policies,
  4. technology,
  5. debt,
  6. labor,
  7. entrepreneurship,
  8. markets,
  9. wealth,
  10. growth.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

2 Finance

THE PROBLEM — Societies need finance for economic welfare, and progress is almost impossible without a well-functioning financial system, but can we actually control the economic and financial systems we have created? The frontier of finance research must be expanded, also using recent paradigms like information theory and big data on top of ideal theories to address emerging fields. Education and periodical assessments are still the most important assets for practitioners.

CONCLUSIONS — The financial industry has evolved into a self-serving complex system sustainable only through a continually increasing supply of credit. The understanding of the structure and functioning of markets and economies is perhaps the single most important goal to ensure equitable future economic and ecological prosperity. A cube can be viewed as a taxonomy to organize research topics and directions by their sources of origin. The global financial crisis led to a renewed focus on risk management along with an increased need to develop more robust methods to measure financial risks. Following the COVID-19 crisis, macro-equity issued by countries would reduce the financial stress created by high public debt. The ten worst performing industries in 2020 are most affected by the COVID-19, but they recover more than other industries after the U.S. quantitative easing announcement. The achievements of the Sustainable Development Goals in the post COVID-19 era will require more government support. People who received any financial education are less likely to have lower financial literacy scores and more likely to have higher scores. Enhancing the integrity of political finance systems is one of the main ways to address political corruption. There is need for the developing countries to emulate the developed countries ways of giving credible support measures to small business enterprises, due to their impacts on economy.
