Stock market crash in Bangladesh in 2010-2011: * Introduction
Stock market is one of the most important financial institutions of any economy as well as Bangladesh. It opens door for companies to raise huge amount of capital from a lot of individual investors inside & outside of a country.
Investors participate voluntary to buy ownership of a company in the public market. It is said that stock market is an intermediary institution to adjust a gap between surplus units and deficit units of an economy. In these days for millions of middle class educated people in Bangladesh investing in stocks is more popular than investing in any other investment sectors. For an investor, stocks are more liquid than any other investment sources as it gives ability to sell and buy ownership anytime without any hassle.

The financial year 2008-09 is known for the global financial and economic crisis. Many developed and developing countries fall into recession. However, it could not affect Bangladesh economy greatly. So, the stock market of the country did not see any significant changes or fall. As CPD (2011) reported, financial year 2008-09 was a volatile year but during this year Bangladesh economy benefited from low prices of import-able and was able to avoid negative pressure on its export of goods and services.

Before the stock market crash the market had become a route of easy money for too many new individual investors. That is why millions of fresh investors invest their small saving in the market during this period. For…...

...Crash is the perfect analogy of how we as a human race deal with life, people and our own experiences. Physical characteristics and racial differences may be interpreted as two distinguishing traits that separate us. I think it's what keeps us apart. The writers of Crash managed to extend my viewing experience beyond the 90 minute film, thus forcing me to analyze my own prejudices and racial stereotypes towards others. I always thought that racism occurred as a result of a person's upbringing. If your parents were racist, there is a good chance that you will be a racist too. At first glance, Matt Dillon's character exhibits characteristics typical of this theory. Dillon exhibited a close bond with his father and later, we discover the roots of his racism. I naively assumed that Dillon was absorbing external cues from his father regarding his attitudes towards black people. It turns out that his father was not racist towards black people. It was Dillon who, in combination with his father's negative experiences and his own as a member of the LAPD, formed his own perceptions towards blacks. Another example of this occurred at the beginning of the film when the Persian family was attempting to purchase a gun. The clerk at the gun shop made a few blatantly racist comments about the perceptions of the customers. There were several references to the twin towers and planes. It didn't matter that the two were Persian, not Arab. A reoccurring theme was that post 9/11, all Middle......

...Social Constructs Found In the Movie “Crash” The aptly named movie, “Crash”, is a depiction of how humans crash into each other, collisions in personality, attitudes, and understanding. In the opening scene we are introduced to the premise of the movie as the man says “We crash into each other, just so we can feel something.” This is the thesis statement for the movie, setting up the idea that our interactions with each can be as traumatic and life changing as a vehicle collision. Each character in the movie played a role in showing the viewer the different influences and behaviors the numerous cultures have towards their very own culture and that of others’. Ethnocentrism, prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination are the core themes presented in the movie “Crash.” At the very beginning of the movie, two African American men are seen leaving a coffee shop, Anthony, the obviously more dominant of the two, and Peter. Anthony is complaining about the poor service they received, blaming the poor service on being African American. Peter is quick to point out that the waitress was also black. Anthony expresses to Peter that black women can also think in stereotypes believing that they, as black men, would not her leave a tip thus not putting forth the effort to provide them with good service. This is an example of stereotyping within a culture. This ties in to the social-conflict theory in that the woman did not see them as worthy of her effort because they would not enhance......

...Zachary Shelsby List and describe the causes of the stock market crash of 1929. Was the crash inevitable? Explain using examples from the presidencies of Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover. It was the time of the Roaring Twenties; where in the wake of the War jazz music was becoming prominent, Art Deco became popular, and cultural dynamism was emphasized. The twenties also led the United States into unprecedented industrial growth, inventions and discoveries of major importance, as well as significant changes in US lifestyle and culture. Though must prosperity was achieved during the Roaring Twenties, much despair would follow by the end of them. The 1920’s saw an increase in consumer spending as well as a large increase in economic growth. The 1920’s was also an era dominated by Republicans. The Republicans took a rather conservative approach to the economy. They forged tight and close relationships between government and big business. President Warren Harding took the White House in 1921, when the United States economy was seeing the time of a depression. Runaway inflation and a high unemployment rate swept the nation. At the time of World War I the United States economy enjoyed prosperity because of the agricultural industry. With the increase of demand came the increase of prices. With the increase of prices came the increase of output used to supply Europe. With the conclusion of the War the American agricultural industry had a massive surplus of farm goods that......

The Stock Market Crash

...DEPRESSION AND THE STOCK MARKET CRASH An Introduction The stock market crash The stock market was created on 1792 to allow stocks and bonds to be traded “bought and sold”. A “stock market crash” is the steep fall of the prices of stocks due to widespread financial panic. America experienced an era of great peace and prosperity during the 1920s. After World War I, the so-called “Roaring Twenties” economic and cultural boom was fueled by industrialization and the popularization of new technologies such as radio and the automobile. Air flight was becoming common as well. The Dow stock average soared throughout the Roaring Twenties and many investors aggressively purchased shares, comforted by the fact that stocks were thought to be extremely safe by most economists due to the country’s powerful economic boom. Investors soon purchased stocks on margin, which is the borrowing of stock for the purpose of gaining financial leverage. For every dollar invested, a margin user would borrow nine dollars worth of stock. The use of leverage meant that if a stock went up 1%, the investor would make 10%. Unfortunately, leverage also works the other way around and amplifies even minor losses. In 1929, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates several times in an attempt to cool the overheated economy and stock market. On Thursday, October 24th 1929, a spate of panic selling occurred as investors began to realize that the stock boom was actually......

Reasons for Stock Market Crash Bd

...Bangladesh stock market faces biggest crash in 55 years. If we would recall, Dhaka Stock Exchange Gen. Index (DGEN) soared to its highest levels from October to December last year, with the peak on Dec. 5, 2010 at 8,918 points. DSE’s index on Jan. 3, 2010 was at 4568.40 and went up at a staggering 4,350 points or 95.23% increase! But 2weeks ago, Jan. 10, 2011, trading on the Dhaka Stock Exchange was halted after it fell by 660points, or 9.25%, in less than an hour, the biggest one-day fall in its 55-year history. Reasons for Stock Market Crash: 1. Bangladesh was having current account surpluses (huge remittance flows). So more money was coming in than going out. It made a situation that lots of people had money in their hands. Rather keeping money at banks, they invested that money in Stock Market. Because you can earn more in a short period of time. 2. Interest rates went down. So, it was not a good idea to get around 8.5% interests per year (before tax) when inflation was around 5-7%.So suddenly, people had a lot of idle money which they were unable to invest anywhere. Anywhere except the stock market that is. Thus the joyride of equities (stocks) began and that situation is still continuing. Because of this excess flow of funds by both general investors as well as institutions (Banks, NBFI's and Insurance companies), multiple attempts by the regulator failed to cool down the market. No alternative investments were available. Plus, when you can earn 30%......

Birth of the Great Depression: Causes of the 1929 Stock Market Crash

...US History March 11th, 2013 Birth of the Great Depression: Causes of the Stock Market Crash of 1929 It was a time of great economic growth in the United States after World War I. The economy was growing rapidly, fueled by industrialization and the rapid development of new technologies such as the automobile, electricity, telephone, aviation and radio. Many people and businesses began investing in the stock market at this time. The stock market is the organized trading of stocks. The owning of stocks gave people partial ownership of a company while infusing cash into the company. In return, people earned money on their investment as the company grew. The stock market provides financial support required by large business to establish and expand their enterprises. This in turn allows companies to grow and increase employment, provide a community tax base, and other financial benefits for the people and the economy. In the 1920’s the stock market boomed. During the 1920’s people were enthusiastic and more willing to take risks. They brought this attitude to the stock market, causing stock prices to increase exponentially. However, the severely overpriced and unaffordable stocks and willingness of the people to carelessly invest their money lead to one of the darkest days in U.S. history: October 29th, 1929. This is the day the stock market crashed, known in infamy as Black Tuesday. The stock market crash of 1929 was caused by numerous flaws in economic policies and actions......

...indexes Real estate indexes Hedge fund indexes Index Weighting Methods ✔ Price Weighted Index: A stock index in which each stock influences the index in proportion to its price per share. The value of the index is generated by adding the prices of each of the stocks in the index and dividing them by the total number of stocks. Stocks with a higher price will be given more weight and, therefore, will have a greater influence over the performance of the index. ✔ Capitalization Weighted Index: A type of market index whose individual components are weighted according to their market capitalization, so that larger components carry a larger percentage weighting. The value of a capitalization-weighted index can be computed by adding up the collective market capitalization of its members and dividing it by the number of securities in the index. ✔ Float-adjusted Market Capitalization Weighted Index: Its like market capitalization weighted index. The weights are based on the proportionate value of each firm's shares that are available to investors to the total market value of the shares of index stocks that are available to investors. Firms with relatively large percentage of their shares held by controlling stockholders will have less weight than they have in an unadjusted marketcapitalization index. ✔ Equal Weighted Index: A type of weighting that gives the same weight, or importance, to each stock in a portfolio or index fund.

Stock Market Crash

...The Stock Market Crash of 1929 After World War 1, the 1920’s was the time of great prosperity in the United States. Due to the new technology the economy benefited greatly. In the years leading up to the stock market crash of 1929, the stock market had gained much popularity as a way of making money. Since stocks prices had been on the rise, they gained the reputation of being a safe way to invest. For instance, from 1921-1929, the Dow Jones went from 60 to 400. Investors were becoming millionaires in an instant due to the increase in the stock market. Some investors were borrowing a lot of money from banks. Many other investors made a big mistake, mortgaged their homes and invested their life savings in stocks. After the stock market quadrupled in value, the bubble burst and stock started to go down. The depression originated in the United States, initiating with the stock market crash of October 29, 1929 (known as Black Tuesday and the red October). It quickly spread to almost every country in the world. What happen is that investment companies were deeply in debt with banks, they sold large amounts of their stock holdings in order to raise cash. Most of them went bankrupt, worsening the banks situation, which led the banks to bankrupt as well. The banks froze credit to companies, and then withdrew their investments from Europe, especially from Germany. The crisis started with the stock market, spread to the banks and then to production. According to......

It’s about several real life incidents that portray discrimination and different stereotypes amongst different racial groups. Within a 36 hour day period car crashes, shooting, carjacking, racial profiling are all mentioned. They reveal the distance between different strangers due to racial tension. Rarely do you see fathers taking an active role in their children’s lives. Most fathers are the bread winners in their family and don’t have time to be in their children’s lives as often as a mother. Most fathers are usually the ones that get involved with the sports life of the child. Involved fathering is a father who actively takes a hand on role with the family, doing more than providing economically. In the movie Crash (2004) Daniel Ruiz’s (Michael Peña), character is a Mexican American who is a locksmith, who faces discrimination because he looks like a “Mexican gangster.” He is actually a devoted single father who takes care of his young daughter; Lara, who seeks for a safe environment for his daughter because of a bullet through her window in their previous home.

...Intercultural Communication, stereotyping, perception, and verbal communication play a huge role in the characteristics of the movie “Crash.” When Paul Haggis directed this film he did a fantastic job of showing how individuals from different cultures, and countries, sometimes interact with each other in society. It goes into great depth to link the problems and situations in the characters’ lives in the setting of the movie making sure they are involved with each other in some way. Intercultural Communication is defined as “an act that involves interaction between people whose cultural perceptions and symbol systems are distinct enough to alter the communication event.” The text explains that the importance of Intercultural Communications have grown in the United States over the years. In the U.S it is made up of many people and demographic shifts. The increasing number of Asians, Latinos, and Eastern Europeans immigrate here to make their homes. When this takes place these individuals bring their cultural values, and styles of communicating. (Wood, pg. 79) When “Crash” starts the first scene is a car accident that takes place at an active crime scene where an Asian woman hits Detective Graham and Ria from behind at a stop light. Language barriers are almost immediately known as they begin to argue over who was at fault. While they both speak English the Asian lady simply uses what she feels is direct communication in stating that “She break to fast” and “Mexicans......

...Crash Movie Analysis Anjelica McCartney HUM/150 January 18, 2016 Victor Armenta Crash Movie Analysis Discrimination, racism, classism, prejudice and more plague today’s society. These horrible issues do not affect one race, sexes, class, ethnicity, or age group; these issues affect all races, both genders, all ethnicities, and all age groups. For this film analysis, I have chosen to discuss the racism portrayed throughout a three-time Oscar award winning movie called Crash. Summary Paul Haggis wrote, directed and produced the film Crash in 2004. The movie Crash interweaves several individuals in Los Angeles over a two-day period. The film shows how a variety of different ethnic characters crosses paths during this period, and it displays their personal experiences involving racism. The movie shows how some are victims of racism as well as how some are guilty of racism against others as well as themselves. ‘Some movies, though, are told very much from the protagonist’s point of view, and the audience needs to go inside of the character’s head, to see the world of the story as the character sees it and feel what they feel’ (Diamond, 2012). Crash will take you there. Characters The movie Crash does not have simply one or two main characters but several. The casting directors, Sarah Finn, and Randi Hiller, carefully selected a magnificent cast to portray the characters in this film. The main characters in this movie include; an African American detective named......

...Written Assignment Crash Police Practices Abstract Deviance defined by William C. Levin is “behavior that does not conform to society’s norms for expected behavior.” The film crash portrays several different forms of deviance. The deviances that stood out to me are when Anthony steals the car from Cameron because of racial discrimination. Another form of deviance portrayed is when Officer Ryan demeans anyone who is African American. The last form of deviance I choose was Jean Cabot as a whole, because of her stereotyping of discrimination. Crash is a film that is surrounded by racism and stereotypes that still today act as a problem in our world. Written Assignment for Police Practices The first form of deviance I choose for this paper is when Anthony steals Cameron’s car. Cameron’s car got stole because of racial discrimination. Anthony soon realizes what he did and how discrimination affects people. This situation to me is the labeling theory because racism is just a label. I also believe that racism still happens today in our world. I’ve been bullied before because of my race. Just because the color of my skin is different, people think its okay to stereotype and be cruel to one another, just because in their eyes they are different. It is painful also because those bully’s are only looking at the outside. They don’t look at your personality, or your heart, it’s just about what’s on the outside. That to me is not acceptable and automatically putting a label on...
