Today the level of debt of many countries close to critical, which was caused and aggravated by economic crisis of 2008—2009. and became the trigger for the so-called “Second wave” of the crisis. A key feature of this new crisis is that the main borrower countries are developed countries such as the U.S., the EU, Japan and others. Thus, we can make the assumption that defaulting of government bonds of the largest economies in the world can provoke an even deeper recession in the world economy, which could lead to a protracted recession and a repeat of the Great Depression of the 30's.
