    : The present world economy has, increasingly, been interconnected in terms of small units such as industries, regions and national economies as discontinuous systems. Changes in these systems have varied impact across the world economies. This paper tries to trace out various triggers, trails and travails of the present crisis, with a view to suggest solutions or treatments for the global financial crisis of 2008-09. For instance, one of the triggers identified is the prolonged implementation of low interest rate policy. This, coupled with the savings glut in the world economy has led to sub-prime lending in the US, as it was used to finance the US mortgage debts. The author indicates that some new lessons have been learnt from the current financial crisis, the most important of them being the need for retooling the finance and economics models. Further, globalization, along with its bestowed benefits, brings in increased frequency and spread of financial and economic crises.
