    The claim of inadequate collateral arose weeks later when the full impact of the Lehman bankruptcy became clear. In other words, we seem to have learned the wrong lessons from our brush with disaster. The nation's largest banks are much safer as a result of substantially higher capital and liquidity requirements, as well as robust stress tests. That is because oversight is shared by several different entities, and the power to implement macroprudential tools is constrained. Innovations in subprime mortgage lending enabled moderate-income households to purchase homes with negligible down payments.

    Thank you for your kind attention. A client who has already weathered a financial storm and didn't panic is probably less likely to do so in the next decline than one who is new to investing. We have also reduced the amount of risk in the system by requiring that most standardized OTC derivatives be cleared through CCPs, where multilateral netting occurs. Are policymakers ready to handle the next one? During the crisis, when then-Treasury secretary Hank Paulson wanted advice on how to handle things, he asked—guess who?

    This is an issue of increased importance given that their role in the financial system has become more prominent. These measures would make the financial system less prone to booms and busts. And, a day later, AIG was rescued in order to protect the rest of the financial system against further losses and even broader contagion. And those who place primary blame for the house-price bubble on the Federal Reserve are exaggerating so much that it smacks of a put-on.

Lessons of the financial crisis book

In addition, he examines the historical record and finds no evidence that Fed officials at the time were concerned about the insufficiency of collateral. The following is a condensed transcript of our recent e-mail exchange: Q.

In addition, we have made considerable progress in developing a viable resolution regime for large, systemically important banks and securities firms. Paulson Jr. With confidence in financial markets and financial intermediaries badly frayed, the Federal Reserve and the U.

The toll from the financial crisis was severe, with nine million jobs lost and eight million housing foreclosures amid the deepest economic downturn since the Great Depression. These objectives are particularly relevant today, when reopening the Dodd-Frank Act and modifying our regulatory framework are under consideration.

This means that we as regulators must continually evaluate the financial system and monitor the landscape for new developments and innovations that, if taken too far, could lead to excess and put the system at risk.

First, financial institutions must be robust to stress. In the context of finance, if the leaders of major banks feel confident that they are too big to fail—that is, that the government will bail them out if they get into trouble—they will make more and more daring bets, assured that taxpayers will come to the rescue even if all of those bets turn out to be crap.

Bernanke deferred to the Treasury secretary, partly because of the mistaken judgment that the markets would take the Lehman bankruptcy in stride.

The first lesson is that financial crises can have grave consequences-for the economy and the nation-that can linger for many years. He argues that many Americans still do not understand what went wrong, and he contends that the government still does not get enough credit for the successes of its policies.

In the case of the great financial crisis ofAndrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times did so in his book Too Big to Failwhich remains a useful description of how it felt on Wall Street when the markets began to collapse.

No longer can the Federal Reserve lend to an individual securities firm or non-bank financial intermediary. We need to be able to resolve a large, systemically important bank or securities firm in a way that limits contagion and stress on the rest of the financial system, while at the same time protecting the taxpayer against loss.

The 2008 Financial Crisis: Lessons Learned

Not surprisingly, when such counterparties became troubled, the clearing banks were less willing to take on these large intraday exposures. As always, what I have to say reflects my own views and opinions and not necessarily those of the Federal Open Market Committee or the Federal Reserve System.

The bust exposed many structural flaws in the financial system that exacerbated its instability. In truth, we need both. You hit it and it comes to rest somewhere.

There are two essential requirements: the ability to initiate an effective resolution strategy over the weekend, and a government entity-be it the Federal Reserve or the FDIC-that can provide a credible liquidity backstop to the recapitalized entity when it opens for business on Monday morning.

The evolution of the financial crisis illustrates a number of key issues, including the potential hazards of financial innovation, the procyclicality of the financial system, and the importance of confidence in sustaining effective financial intermediation.

The rise in home prices led to a surge in construction activity, which helped to sustain the housing boom for a time. Structural weaknesses in the money market mutual fund industry-which was a major source of short-term wholesale funding to the securities industry and various non-bank financial corporations-also exacerbated the crisis.
