Media Portrayal, Globalisation and Financial Crises (2011)

The main aim of this dissertation is to investigate how technology, globalisation and the media have shaped events during the 2007-2010 financial crises. This final year dissertation will explore the new technology and increased globalisation that has arisen from the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the cold war, and the impact this has had on both media systems and financial markets. It will explore the impact the subsequent advancements in the media have had on the coverage of the events of the 2007-2010 financial crisis in comparison to the Wall Street crash of 1929 and the global economic depression that ensued. It will focus on the comparative content and coverage the two crises have received in national British newspapers. The paper will then go on to look at the direct impact the media and financial journalists have had in shaping the events and the outcomes of the 2007-2010 financial crisis; whether or not the media was responsible for foreseeing the crisis before it happened. Finally the paper will look at the arguments for and against the regulation of the media in the event of future financial crises..
