Since the advent of the subprime crisis in 2007 that it is commonly believed to have led to the Great recession and to the present global financial crisis, these issues have been subject to much research. In fact, no one can claim that the Great Recession and the global financial crisis have been under-researched. In fact, the new world recession has been analysed from different angles and perspectives. Historians, economists, financial experts, psychologists, anthropologists and other experts in academic, financial, economic and other fields of research are still analysing the contemporary global financial crisis.
There is ample information on the new world recession, and upcoming documentations are bringing new knowledge on this newsworthy issue and topical research subject. While some researchers are focusing on the recession at national levels such as on the economy of the United Kingdom or on the United States of America economic market, others have tackled the subject from a global perspective focus on the recession on international trades and global markets.

For example, some nations believe that their macro-economic policy is the best solution to get out of this global financial crisis. They are spreading their roots to become the new hegemony.
However, these discourses also make possible the sharing of cues, ideas and values that contribute to a better understanding of the global financial crisis, its impacts, causes and implications. They facilitate the transmission of knowledge that is vital to find means to get out of the crisis and minimise the negative impacts of the recession. However, transmission also implies that these discourses influence people’s perception and conception of the new world recession. Hence, these discourses confer power to leaders and academics to manipulate the population to believe what they want the latter to believe.
