About This Special Issue
Since 1930, the great global financial and economic crisis has confused the financial system and the real economy has plunged into recession. To late 2008, the financial crisis began to affect the real economy, which has caused a global recession.

However, the crisis remains among the major issues of the economy although it does not reach all countries in the same way.

In this respect, developed countries experience a significant contraction of their economies at the same time emerging markets are doing quite well. These economies have adopted macroeconomic frameworks with the objectives of stabilizing inflation and control public debt levels.

Economic and financial turmoil have both revealed weaknesses in most economies and instilled an awareness of the need to act together.

This special issue is aimed at promoting discussion bordering on all areas of economic, finance and business (micro and macro foundations), how they affect policy, implementation, management or human existence, and provide solutions to the problems that hamper the present or future existence.

It is devoted to the most recent developments and research outcomes addressing the related theoretical and practical aspects of economic and financial, and it could serve as a background for policy change or review of policies, scientific methods and address issues that presently affect or will affect society in the future.

We especially encourage experience reports and studies of this subject, providing best practices and lessons learned. We are also looking forward to survey papers on current research in this area.

We solicit for papers (contemporary reviews, original papers, hypothesis, perspectives, views and opinion containing high-quality artwork and require the use of mechanistic summary diagrams) from researchers, lecturers and experts from all around the world. The submission must be clearly written and in excellent English, with a maximum page limit of 15 pages.

All papers will be indexed in international databases. High quality papers may have the possibility of been presented to supranational organizations such as the United Nations. Review of manuscripts will be completed within suitable date after submission.
