  3. How did the financial crisis begin? • The financial crisis began in the US in the middle of 2007. • Since 2006 - 40% of new U.S. mortgages were non-prime mortgages, often with very high loan-to-value ratios and minimal documentation. • It looked like until the middle of 2008 that global growth would cushion the damage in the US. • The latest stage of the financial crisis started in September 2008, when several important U.S. financial institutions had financial problems with bad debts and a lack of liquidity and closed. Dr Tony Stokes - Economics at ACU National

  4. How did the financial crisis begin? • Lehman Brothers’ decision to file for bankruptcy, in particular, impacted global financial markets, worsened the severe contraction in market liquidity and heightening concerns about risks. • This led to a rise in borrowing costs for both financial and nonfinancial firms (see next slide) • This also spread to other nations where financial organisations had borrowed from these markets. • The probability of debt defaulting in the US has doubled in the last 12 months Dr Tony Stokes - Economics at ACU National
