We hereafter refer to the Merton model modified by Moody’s KMV(Crosbie & Bohn,2003) as the Merton/KMV model. The firm defaults when the debt exceeds equity. The default point acts as an absorbing barrier and as soon as the asset value hits this point , the firm is assumed to default. (Crosbie & Bohn, 2003) find that it is not unusual for a firm to not default when asset values reach book values, as many continue to service their debts due to the long term nature of some liabilities. KMV derives the default point to be somewhere between the total liabilities and current
Tax is the amount of money imposed by the government on a certain product purchased by the taxpayer. Huge tax imposed on the banking industry would result in changing the lending rates of the banks. This would reduce the borrowing ability of the loan borrowers as a result of huge interest rates. However subsidies are the sum of money granted by the government to assist the banking sector in lowering their lending rates this has an effect of increasing the borrowing ability due to low interest rates. Continual increase in taxes has an effect of rabidly increasing the cost of loan, hence a deterrent factor to borrowers which would translate to financial crisis.

Economic crisis is a situation in which the economy of a country experiences a sudden downturn brought on by a financial crisis. An economy facing an economic crisis will most likely experience a falling GDP, a drying up of liquidity and rising/falling prices due to inflation/deflation. An economic crisis can take the form of a recession or a depression. Economic crises not only affect the level of economic activities but can also cause financial panic, which lowers monetary policy efficiency with more damaging effects on the economy. A central bank’s main objective during a crisis is to contain the damage and limit the impact of the crisis on the real economy.

A credit boom followed as banks sought to capitalize on the increased liquidity, which involved higher risk-taking by the

Both of these ways can provide benefits for the economy but can also be costly for it as well.
