In a paper, Ricardo J. Caballero , Emmanuel Farhi , and Pierre-Olivier Gourinchas argued that the financial crisis was attributable to "global asset scarcity, which led to large capital flows toward the United States and to the creation of asset bubbles that eventually burst. That is, the global economy was subject to one shock with multiple implications rather than to two separate shocks financial and oil.
The empirical research has been mixed. In a book, John McMurtry suggested that a financial crisis is a systemic crisis of capitalism itself. In his book, The Downfall of Capitalism and Communism , Ravi Batra suggests that growing inequality of financial capitalism produces speculative bubbles that burst and result in depression and major political changes. He also suggested that a "demand gap" related to differing wage and productivity growth explains deficit and debt dynamics important to stock market developments.
John Bellamy Foster , a political economy analyst and editor of the Monthly Review , believed that the decrease in GDP growth rates since the early s is due to increasing market saturation. Marxian economics followers Andrew Kliman , Michael Roberts, and Guglielmo Carchedi, in contradistinction to the Monthly Review school represented by Foster, pointed to capitalism's long-term tendency of the rate of profit to fall as the underlying cause of crises generally.
From this point of view, the problem was the inability of capital to grow or accumulate at sufficient rates through productive investment alone. Low rates of profit in productive sectors led to speculative investment in riskier assets, where there was potential for greater return on investment.
The speculative frenzy of the late 90s and s was, in this view, a consequence of a rising organic composition of capital, expressed through the fall in the rate of profit. According to Michael Roberts, the fall in the rate of profit "eventually triggered the credit crunch of when credit could no longer support profits". Bogle wrote that "Corporate America went astray largely because the power of managers went virtually unchecked by our gatekeepers for far too long".
Echoing the central thesis of James Burnham 's seminal book, The Managerial Revolution , Bogle cites issues, including: . Roeder suggested that "recent technological advances, such as computer-driven trading programs, together with the increasingly interconnected nature of markets, has magnified the momentum effect. This has made the financial sector inherently unstable. This stagnation forced the population to borrow to meet the cost of living. A report by the International Labour Organization concluded that cooperative banking institutions were less likely to fail than their competitors during the crisis.
Economists, particularly followers of mainstream economics , mostly failed to predict the crisis. Popular articles published in the mass media have led the general public to believe that the majority of economists have failed in their obligation to predict the financial crisis. For example, an article in The New York Times noted that economist Nouriel Roubini warned of such crisis as early as September , and stated that the profession of economics is bad at predicting recessions.
Rose and Mark M. The authors examined various economic indicators, ignoring contagion effects across countries. The authors concluded: "We include over sixty potential causes of the crisis, covering such categories as: financial system policies and conditions; asset price appreciation in real estate and equity markets; international imbalances and foreign reserve adequacy; macroeconomic policies; and institutional and geographic features. Despite the fact that we use a wide number of possible causes in a flexible statistical framework, we are unable to link most of the commonly cited causes of the crisis to its incidence across countries.
This negative finding in the cross-section makes us skeptical of the accuracy of 'early warning' systems of potential crises, which must also predict their timing. The Austrian School regarded the crisis as a vindication and classic example of a predictable credit-fueled bubble caused by laxity in monetary supply.
Several followers of heterodox economics predicted the crisis, with varying arguments. Shiller, a founder of the Case-Shiller index that measures home prices, wrote an article a year before the collapse of Lehman Brothers in which he predicted that a slowing U. Karim Abadir, based on his work with Gabriel Talmain,  predicted the timing of the recession  whose trigger had already started manifesting itself in the real economy from early There were other economists that did warn of a pending crisis.
In , at a celebration honoring Alan Greenspan , who was about to retire as chairman of the US Federal Reserve , Rajan delivered a controversial paper that was critical of the financial sector. These risks are known as tail risks. But perhaps the most important concern is whether banks will be able to provide liquidity to financial markets so that if the tail risk does materialize, financial positions can be unwound and losses allocated so that the consequences to the real economy are minimized.
Stock trader and financial risk engineer Nassim Nicholas Taleb , author of the book The Black Swan , spent years warning against the breakdown of the banking system in particular and the economy in general owing to their use of and reliance on bad risk models and reliance on forecasting, and framed the problem as part of "robustness and fragility".
The first visible institution to run into trouble in the United States was the Southern California—based IndyMac , a spin-off of Countrywide Financial. Before its failure, IndyMac Bank was the largest savings and loan association in the Los Angeles market and the seventh largest mortgage loan originator in the United States.
The primary causes of its failure were largely associated with its business strategy of originating and securitizing Alt-A loans on a large scale. This strategy resulted in rapid growth and a high concentration of risky assets.
From its inception as a savings association in , IndyMac grew to the seventh largest savings and loan and ninth largest originator of mortgage loans in the United States. IndyMac's aggressive growth strategy, use of Alt-A and other nontraditional loan products, insufficient underwriting, credit concentrations in residential real estate in the California and Florida markets—states, alongside Nevada and Arizona, where the housing bubble was most pronounced—and heavy reliance on costly funds borrowed from a Federal Home Loan Bank FHLB and from brokered deposits, led to its demise when the mortgage market declined in IndyMac often made loans without verification of the borrower's income or assets, and to borrowers with poor credit histories.
Appraisals obtained by IndyMac on underlying collateral were often questionable as well. Ultimately, loans were made to many borrowers who simply could not afford to make their payments. The thrift remained profitable only as long as it was able to sell those loans in the secondary mortgage market. IndyMac resisted efforts to regulate its involvement in those loans or tighten their issuing criteria: see the comment by Ruthann Melbourne, Chief Risk Officer, to the regulating agencies.
On May 12, , in the "Capital" section of its last Q, IndyMac revealed that it may not be well capitalized in the future. IndyMac concluded that these downgrades would have harmed its risk-based capital ratio as of June 30, Had these lowered ratings been in effect at March 31, , IndyMac concluded that the bank's capital ratio would have been 9.
IndyMac was taking new measures to preserve capital, such as deferring interest payments on some preferred securities. Dividends on common shares had already been suspended for the first quarter of , after being cut in half the previous quarter.
The company still had not secured a significant capital infusion nor found a ready buyer. The letter outlined the Senator's concerns with IndyMac. While the run was a contributing factor in the timing of IndyMac's demise, the underlying cause of the failure was the unsafe and unsound way it was operated. On June 26, , Senator Charles Schumer D-NY , a member of the Senate Banking Committee , chairman of Congress' Joint Economic Committee and the third-ranking Democrat in the Senate, released several letters he had sent to regulators, in which he was"concerned that IndyMac's financial deterioration poses significant risks to both taxpayers and borrowers.
IndyMac announced the closure of both its retail lending and wholesale divisions, halted new loan submissions, and cut 3, jobs. Until then, depositors would have access their insured deposits through ATMs, their existing checks, and their existing debit cards. Telephone and Internet account access was restored when the bank reopened. IndyMac Bancorp filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on July 31, Initially the companies affected were those directly involved in home construction and mortgage lending such as Northern Rock and Countrywide Financial , as they could no longer obtain financing through the credit markets.
Over mortgage lenders went bankrupt during and The financial institution crisis hit its peak in September and October Several major institutions either failed, were acquired under duress, or were subject to government takeover. Fuld Jr. Fuld said he was a victim of the collapse, blaming a "crisis of confidence" in the markets for dooming his firm.

Shortly after becoming the first European country to slide into recession, Ireland's government promises to underwrite the entire Irish banking system — a pledge that they were ultimately unable to uphold. After days of wrangling in Congress, Hank Paulson pushes through the Troubled Asset Relief Program Tarp , which at that point bought or insured toxic sub-prime mortgage securities from the major banks.
David Buik, market strategist, and consultant at Cantor Index. But with Tarp, he took a decision. And that has to be right. Markets cope very well with good news. They cope even better with bad news. They do not cope with uncertainty". Iceland's three biggest commercial banks — Glitnir, Kaupthing, and Landsbanki — collapse. To protect the deposits of their many British customers, Gordon Brown uses anti-terror legislation to freeze the assets of the banks' UK subsidiaries.
Amid the worst ever week for the Dow Jones, eight central banks including the Bank of England, the European Central Bank, and the Federal Reserve cut their interest rates by 0. The deal is thrashed out over the weekend, and well into the small hours of Monday morning.
That's why we stepped in. We will never appreciate how close we came to a collapse of the banking system. After criticism from high-profile economists, Hank Paulson announces drastic changes to Tarp. He cancels the acquisition of toxic assets, and decides instead to give banks cash injections. Charles Ferguson, director, Inside Job, an Oscar-winning documentary about the banking crisis.
Hank Paulson would change his plans and his public statements on approximately a daily basis. It also became clear that they were not going to punish people or change the nature of the system. The G20 meets for the first time since Lehman's went under, in a meeting that was compared in significance to the Bretton Woods summit in Adair Turner, the chairman of the Financial Services Authority, calls some banking activity "socially useless".
George Papandreou's socialist government is elected in Greece. Just over a week later, he reveals that the hole in Greece's finances are double what was previously feared. This intensifies the austerity programme in the country, and sends hundreds of thousands of protesters to the streets. Having failed to get its house in order, Greece is bailed out for a second time. Unexpectedly, ECB president Mario Draghi, above, gives his strongest defence yet of the Euro, prompting markets to rally.
