Yet, one of the striking changes in the global economy over the past decade and a half is the rising importance of emerging market economies, but the global financial crisis broke conventional views about the amount of reserves an economy needs to protect itself from the effects of global crises. It's up to you to get the information you need to secure your financial future, because everything that happens in the economic world, sooner or later will affect your pocket.
