Recessions, downgrades and Super Mario - 2011: the year in money

2011 may be remembered in future as the year we sorted out the financial crisis – or the year in which it grew beyond our control.

IT’S REGULARLY QUIPPED that a 2011 episode of ‘Reeling in the Years’ would need to be given its own box set, such is the volume of groundbreaking events we’ve seen in the last twelve months.

Though it has been less crammed with epochal moments, the 2008-2011 financial crisis (soon to become the ’2008-2012′ financial crisis) has been one of the defining stories of the year on the global stage, as leaders struggle to bring an end to the collective fear of investors: that Europe simply isn’t worth investing in.

Here, in an attempt to take stock of everything that’s happened this year, is our gallery of financially-themed news in 2011.
