Born in 2008 in one of the most dynamic economies of the world as a massive financial crush and spilled over developed countries threatening growth and social stability, the global financial crisis unveiled structural problems in mitigating global risks associated with the integration of markets. While the financial crisis received a strong response from the governments facing declining aggregate demand and recession, a sovereign debt crisis to follow the banking crisis was imminent, but its likely proportion was hard to estimate. The paper approaches in a systemic way the distribution of income in developed economies, the issues associated to this process and the specific situation in CEE countries.
