Emerging economies like China and India are also suffering from the ill effects of the US Subprime Crisis. All these countries together form a major part of the global economy. So, it can be said that the US Subprime Market Crisis is going to affect the global economy as a whole. As all the countries mentioned above are being influenced in a negative way by the US economy recession, it is expected that the growth rate of the world economy would experience a significant fall.According to Alan Greenspan, the Former Federal Reserve Chairman, Global Recession is surely going to take place in some form or other.
As the US Federal Reserve is opting interest rate cuts in order to fight with the problem of subprime crisis, countries like UK and Japan are also introducing interest rate cuts in their country. India is also thinking over introducing a cut in interest rate in its next monetary policy. This is because all these countries are speculating that cut in US interest rate will result in capital inflow in their economies which will in turn result in high levels of inflation.
