then to extend to the rest of  economy.

What led to the current  financial crisis ? 

The current global financial crisis was triggered by the sub-prime mortgage crisis in the US. sub-prime refers, here, to a borrower that is not prime. This borrower who might be less likely to repay a loan. Because of : 

Bad credit. Low income or poor. Large loans relative to the securing proberty.


Globally, companies and individuals have an ever increasing demand for capital for both personal and corporate investments. Traditionally, banks have been very conservative and stringent in their requirements. 

Banks have financed their mortgage lending through the deposits they receive from their customers. This has limited the amount of mortgage lending they could do. This makes access to finance difficult for the majority of the people.


In recent years, banks have moved to a new model where they sell the mortgages to the investment bank.  This has made it much easier to fund additional borrowing to sub-prime borrowers .


Relaxation of lending terms for mortgages was as a result of the boom in the housing sector. Millions of Americans with poor credit history who might not have bought their homes were granted sub-prime mortgages. This led to the growing of the mortgage bond market as mortgage brokers focused on less than ideal clients.

HOW THAT HAPPENED???? This proved to be very profitable as banks earned a fee for each mortgage sold and urged brokers to sell more and more.  The sub-prime mortgages, referred to as  Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) had a fixed payment for two years.  Then reset to higher (double the interest  rate) rate sand became more expensive for the people to repay. 


millions of Americans are having their homes repossessed due to failure to repay the mortgages. House prices which have been falling at  an annual rate of 4.5 percent in the past 3 years and are expected to fall by at least 10 percent in 2008.

The banking industry has collapsed because of the sub-prime mortgages.  As a result banks lost confidence in customers. The slow down in the building industry affected other industries negatively.

Car industry has collapsed too because of the decreasing of purchase power of the american people. GENERAL MOTORS and FORD fleed from bankrupcy tanks to the governmental support.  A large number of employees left thier jobs because of this situation. LEHMEN BROTHERS: Ranked among the world's top investment banks. The sub-prime crisis with the decline in value of housing forced the company to take huge write downs on the value of those assets and led to the loss of about US$14 billion.


The emerging economies have to a great extent remained resilient to the global financial turmoil. However the strong growth in these economies has been affected by the global down turn in economic activity, hence growth is expected to moderate.


Financial markets in the developed world have been adversely affected by the financial crisis.This has weakened growth in these economies. IMF projections show that by end of  2008 and early 2009 most developed economies will be on the verge of a recession if not in a recession.
