The present research is proposed to analyze reasons and impact of 2008 financial crisis at macro & micro level, specifically focused on input (flow of liquidity at national level) and output (flaw in revenue realization at corporate level). We intend to study extensively G20 countries’ net capital flow vis-à-vis inflation, interest rate, saving, investment, growth & exchange rate at macro level during 2007-2009. We compare net current balance of G20 countries during the period and growth rate using time series & regression analysis. At micro level, we will study selected financial indicators (stock prices, profitability & cash flow) during the period of top 200 public companies on Forbes list. We test impact of one on another.
Motivation of the research undertaken is to advocate for framing suitable monitory, fiscal & business policy if we find linkages between cycle of capital flow and flaw in revenue realization pattern that can give some early indication to influence the said cycle by timely intervention through policy measures.
