Sample text

The security for the money you owe to a lender. When you take out a mortgage, you borrow money and give the lender an interest in a property to secure the repayment of the debt. When you’ve satisfied the terms of the mortgage (that is, when you’ve paid the debt), the interest of the lender in your property will be returned to you. If you don’t repay the debt, the lender can foreclose on the property. Outsourcing. The increasingly common practice of contracting people outside an organization to perform work that used to be done by people within a company.

Those who borrow too much fail first, as they cannot service their debt, and that causes a rise in bankruptcies and asset prices to fall, leading to a vicious circle of debt-unwinding known as deleveraging (see #9 Deleveraging). The challenge of the government is to intervene effectively to help out the economy. The Great Depression led to a significant banking panic. As banks failed, the government adopted a “laissez-faire” mentality, letting weaker elements be flushed from the system. This approach is good in theory, but it accelerated the panic.

Why? Obviously, if people are losing jobs, demand is most likely falling, as are incomes and purchasing power. When people lose jobs, they can afford less, home foreclosures rise, they can save less for retirement, and their future becomes more grim in general. Economists also recognize that there is no such thing as a true, 100 percent, full-employment economy. Some unemployment is structural; that is, created by changing job requirements—there simply aren’t as many jobs for autoworkers or office clerks these days.
