Failure of Lehman Brothers also led to the bankruptcy of several insurers and the nationalization of AIG because of the insurers’ exposure on credit default swaps (CDS), an insurance contract which protected holders of CDOs in the event that the underlying loans went into default. Because of the interconnectedness of the different financial products mentioned above, problems arising in the property sector subsequent to the rapid decline in property prices would not be confined to that sector alone and would eventually spread throughout the whole of the financial sector.

According to economic historian Eugene White, the National Banking System in the United States had kept economic losses to depositors at a minimum during the period 1864–1913 in spite of a fragmented banking structure and the absence of a central bank. The regulatory regime at the time was a light-handed one according to White (2011) and aimed at reinforcing market discipline rather than superseding it. The Great Depression in the 1930s, together with the establishment of the Federal Reserve, ushered in a more heavily regulatory regime in the financial sector.

Levine (1997, 2005) provides a very comprehensive review on this literature. Two major findings emerge from the vast literature focusing on examining the link between financial market development and economic prosperity (Levine 2011a). The first major finding is that financial systems exert a significant influence over the economy primarily through the quality of capital allocation, not the quantity of investments. In other words, finance should be best viewed as an economy’s nervous system, choosing where to allocate scare capital resources, rather than a plumbing system where injecting more credit in one end yields more economic growth at the other end.
