Top ten financial institutions of the world
By greater optimism and assurances by America, major part of the world succumbed to globalization and WTC agreements. American companies, for their profit, encouraged the buying habits of people in the globe, and people, by high yielding soft-ware professions etc, were attracted by the glittering style of posh materials, adopted the stylish life. In order to get export orders for certain products, and get outsourcing contracts, allowed foreign companies( most of which were from America) to do their business in other countries.Especially Third –world countries were easily fooled by these assurances. Banking institutions and financial institutions lent credits for such purchases.By such mis-directed encouragements, finance institutions turned out to be just credit institutions.
