The keiretsu, banks, and Japanese government with their controls, limits, and other regulations was all done for the reason of profit. The shift in lending practices in banks was by the keiretsu who placed their dependency on other capital markets while the Bank of Japan and Ministry of Finance had their focus on rising prices but ultimately only saw a rise with a steady pace. This showed that a land bubble was unexpected. The bubble was then only stabilized with the correction in laws and capital markets, with the liberalization of the Japanese economy. Therefore is the controls were in place much earlier, this could have possible prevented the
Prior to that, the most common reason for central bank intervention over the last decade or so would be because of a sharp or sudden decline in the value of a currency. It can however turn problematic for a nation to use market intervention whenever the currency value does decline steeply in the foreign exchange market and it will lead to several disadvantages to the nation. Export-dependent countries could spiral into recession if they become too reliant on market intervention. Global trading partners’ exchange rates will rise as well, while the prices of their exports increase within the global market place. A decline in value of a nations’ currency can also lead to an increase in inflation as prices of imported services and goods will go up.
During a period of tough competition between mortgage lenders for revenue and market share, and when the supply of creditworthy borrowers was limited, mortgage lenders relaxed underwriting standards and originated riskier mortgages to less creditworthy borrowers.  In the view of some analysts, the relatively conservative government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) policed mortgage originators and maintained relatively high underwriting standards prior to 2003. However, as market power shifted from securitizers to originators and as intense competition from private securitizers undermined GSE power, mortgage standards declined and risky loans proliferated.  The worst loans were originated in 2004–2007, the years of the most intense competition
This will make the option of renting a house sounds better since the interest rate has a bigger effect to the owners if they have large mortgages. For example, in 1990-1992, the sharp rise in interest rates caused a very steep fall in United Kingdom house prices because homeowners could not afford the rise in interest rates. Supply The typical market supply curve consists of price of the houses and the quantity of the houses provided.

3. How might these changes affect the US economy? As the loan process is made harder, this will also increase the interest rate of the bank , since it will be now harder to quality for the loan and will lower the housing market. 4.

The United States banks created too much of money with the intention to push up the house prices and speculate the financial markets. Besides that, some government policies such as increasing the home ownership
Housing prices are determined by the relations of demand and supply, and it is likewise any other goods and services in the market economy (Hashim, 2010). The increased population will lead to the increase in housing demand (Mohd. Tawil, Hamzah, Khoiry, Che Ani, & Basri, 2011). High demand in housing and low people’s demand for owner-occupied housing is generally caused by not only the housing price, but also population growth, household formation rate and income growth (Flavin & Yamashita, 2002). Changes in the quantity of housing demanded will affect the housing supply, thus posing a direct impact on housing price.
It was also his view that the tax will lead to an increase in the prices of houses in a specific jurisdiction. Rolph and Break, (1969) however on the other hand argues that a property tax can be shifted backwards to immobile capital. In their views the tax is levied
No doubt, this will lead to high unemployment due to some firms operating below normal capacity. To combat unemployment in a recession, the government needs to carry out an expansionary policy by increasing money supply and decreasing interest rate. Thus, lower the interest rate will lead to increase in aggregate demand (consumption, investment, government expenditure and net export). Besides that, a reducing bank’s reserve requirement and purchasing government bonds will enhance real GDP increase to the potential GDP and the price level rises, hence eliminate the recession gap. In 1998 (financial crisis), credit flow in Malaysia is slow (UK Essays, 2013).
The role of housing industry towards the betterment of people’s life cannot be understated.

Despite the rising prices, the higher demands of housing of the Malaysian house buyers over the decades reflect the importance of home ownership to the Malaysians (Hanafi, 2015). House Buyer Association (HBA) in Malaysia (2002) stated that buying a house is an important event in a person's life.
