This financial crisis also referred to as the great recession was triggered by liquidity problems in the United States economy. Many large financial institutions collapsed according to Geczy (2010). The government had to bail out some banks and this resulted in a decrease in the stock and money funds investments in the United States and spread on all across the globe. A report compiled by the U.S Financial Crises Inquiry Commission shows that the infamous global crises could have been avoided. It pointed out that failure in different financial institutions including the Federal Reserve accelerated the crises.
introduction The 2008 financial crisis led to a sharp increase in mortgage foreclosures primarily subprime leading to a collapse in several mortgage lenders. Recurrent foreclosures and the harms of subprime mortgages were caused by loose lending practices, housing bubble, low interest rates and extreme risk taking (Zandi, 2008). Additionally, expert analysis on the 2008 financial crisis assert that the cause was also due to erroneous monetary policy moves and poor housing policies. The federal government encouraged the expansion of risky mortgages to under-qualified borrowers. Congress pushed for the support of affordable housing through extended procurement of non-prime loans for applicants with low income (Zandi, 2008).
The three most important things that I learned in this course are as follows: 1) Causes of Financial Crisis Financial crises have influenced the os of financial markets in past. The most important the Great Depression in 1929-30, the 1970s inflation failures and the banking difficulties in the 1990s led to problems in the financial markets causing serious disturbance. The recent financial crisis which became known in 2007, though the roots were implanted much earlier, has been the worst situation financial markets have ever faced.

There are a variety of factors that has resulted in the explosion of this financial crisis.
In the late 2000s, the World suffered from a big global economic crisis which caused “the largest and sharpest drop in global economic activity of the modern era”, in which “most major developed economies find themselves in a deep recession”, according to McKibbin and Stoeckel (1). Because its consequences have a very big impact to the whole world, many economists and scientist have tried to find the causes of the crisis; and some major causes have been emphasized are greed, the defection of the free market system, and the lack of prudent regulation and supervision. This essay will focus on the global imbalances, one of the most important causes of the current economic crisis. Many researchers have pointed out that the global imbalances are the root of the recent financial crisis. Portes claims that “the underlying problem in international finance over the past decade has been global imbalances, not greed, poor incentive structures, or weak financial regulation, however egregious and important these may be.” (2).

Conclusion Introduction The financial crisis of 2007–2008 is considered by many economists the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. This crisis resulted in the threat of total collapse of large financial institutions, the bailout of banks by national governments, and downturns in stock markets around the world. The crisis led to a series of events including: the 2008–2012 global recessions and the European sovereign-debt crisis. The reasons of this financial crisis are argued by economists.

Ocaya (2012) state that the credit crisis is a financial market or economic meltdown of borrowing the funds to the borrower and cannot get back, it evaluated by severe shortage of money or credit bring accumulation of bad debts, defaults and falling financial institutions among others. However, the experts and economists are unclear as what form a credit crisis. The Wall Street defines a credit crisis as a “period during which borrowed funds are difficult to get and, even if funds can find, interest rates are very high”. Credit crisis mostly began in 2007. The effect of the credit crisis has brought fall down on the housing market in some country resulting in foreclosures and unemployment.
Introduction In 2008, the world experienced a tremendous financial crisis which is rooted from the U.S housing market. Moreover, it is considered by many economists as one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression in 1930s. After bringing a huge effect on the U.S economy, the financial crisis expanded to Europe and the rest of the world. It ruined economies, crumble financial corporations and impoverished individual lives. For example, the financial crisis has resulted in the collapse of massive financial institutions such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers and AIG.
The unconventional monetary policies implemented by the Bank of England, U.S. Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank in response to the financial crisis The signification of the financial crisis followed the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008 caused the decrease in the market activity and the growth of globalization economy. A vast of problems, such as deflation, reduction in capital liquidity and so forth, confront with each government and central bank as well as having significant negative effect on development of economy that lowering of GDP. After the financial crisis erupting and spreading to all around the world’s financial condition, some measures for example, lowering of interest rate and keeping the reserve requirement lowing, implemented by central banks aimed at stabilize market price and funds liquidity to support aggregate demand. However, actually, the central banks’ interest rate is very low in United Kingdom, European system and United Stated, which is closing to zero bound, so that it is difficult for central banks to maintain financial condition and support a further stimulation via tool of interest rate (Benford et al, 2009). Meanwhile, commercial banks reduced the aggregate of bank loans in order to remain sufficient reserve and prevent their value of assets, because not enough money expand their investment to profit with high risk investing environment.
