Aspectos éticos de la crisis financiera


  • Luisa Montuschi


Se analizan aspectos de la crisis financiera para identificar cuales fueron las principales causas que la llevaron a los límites conocidos. Es cierto que el problema encontró sus raices en el mercado de hipotecas subprime y en la falta de responsabilidad de las principales instituciones financieras. Pobres políticas económicas crearon el contexto adecuado para que la crisis tuviera los alcances que se conocen. Pero no puede dejar de considerarse el factor humano. En particular, debe tenerse en cuenta la codicia que parece haber sido el elemento común a los principales protagonistas. Y su falta de liderazgo e integridad. Se presentan los casos más relevantes (Fannie Mae- Freddie Mac, AIG, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers entre otros). Su análisis genera serias dudas acerca del hecho de si no podrían volver a repetirse las circunstancias que llevaron a la crisis
