Will investment markets ever be the same again?

While we have been through many recessions and boom times in the UK and bounced back fairly quickly from the majority of them, there is a feeling that the scars left this time will take longer to heal. We have seen well known companies go out of business, we have seen banking systems collapse and over the next few months we will see a massive increase in the number of personal bankruptcies in the UK. But will market sever be the same again?

When you break down the affects of the current slowdown they have been huge and magnified by the previous period of greed. However, the fact is that markets will recover in due course, they will revert back to 'normal' and we will probably go through another slowdown in the near future - although it will probably not be as tough.

The next generation of UK investors will not remember the 2008 credit crunch, they will look for the best investments, they will chase prices higher and we will see boom and bust return. While the government are talking the talk at the moment, as markets recover we will slowly see regulation reduced and the same issues happen again in the future.

The bottom line is that governments around the world need strong economies, they need tax income and they need financial markets to work. At some point not too far away they will again bend over backwards to help.
