About the cause of the 2007-08 Global Financial Crisis and the measures Along with the development of economic globalization, the world economies have closely linked. Therefore, 2007-08 financial crises made economies have suffered varying degrees of influence. This was a from the USA subprime mortgage crisis and once in a century financial crisis by Arup Shah (2013). Famous American investor, entrepreneur and philanthropist Warren Buffett (2008) claimed that“ the US economy is in recession and degree would be more serious than most people expected”. I found some of the causes of the crisis, for example, investments and loans have distorted the economic development.
The Great Depression revealed the dangers of supplanting real industry and enterprise with a “casino economy” in which the high interest rates impose an intolerable and unsustainable debt burden on private income. Hence regulations were put in place to curb over speculation and increasing interest rates. Glass Steagall Act was one of them. However regulations became a target of Reagan administration reformers. For example, the Garn-St. Germain Act allowed S&L associations to take demand deposits and make commercial and industrial loans.
Barclays couldn’t gain much of a profit because the country was suffering from financial crisis which left several companies being shut down. The manipulation of Libor rate left several industries under huge debts during the crisis and the financial crisis worsen up because of the debt individuals were in. Barclays didn’t gain but it lost a lot after the Libor scandal was revealed as the bank was being fined for its involvement in the manipulation of Libor rates. Barclays reputation as the largest bank was tarnished after the scandals were revealed. Barclays lost more money than they could have made by the fines they are currently paying for their role in the manipulation of the Libor rate.

India prior to this had dated and redundant laws when it came to bankruptcy and insolvency provisions. The regime was not only flawed but was also inadequate and time consuming. The biggest discouraging factor for the investors and/or entrepreneurs was the fact that in order to recover from an ‘investment gone bad’, they would have to deal with a maze of scattered laws for the revival, to exit or for restructuring of the company. Nearly half a dozen laws covered the insolvency and bankruptcy provisions- ranging from the Indian Contract Act to SARFESI. The laws related to recovery of debts to banks, financial institutions, companies and winding up proceedings, sick companies, public and other statutory financial corporations.
1.1 Introduction ”Too Big to Fail”(TBTF), is a well known and widely accepted phenomenon used even by people who are not well-informed in economics and banking. Many people and economists has the opinion that ”Big” in financial institutions is bad. Different in opinions have been shared in the last decade about banks since the inception of financial crisis in 2008. When a big bank encounters some financial distress it generate fear because if it goes bankrupt, its resulting consequences will endanger more financial institutions and hence cause a catastrophe to entire economy.

Unit banks were a serious problem in the twentieth century Great Depression especially, as it was “a system of banking in which the government restricts or does not permit a bank to open branch offices”. This hence means that unit banks were particularly susceptible to failure if the local economy of the community they were established in began to struggle. This would initially have a severe economic impact on the local economy, as a unit bank would struggle to raise the finances available to sustain themselves throughout a period of economic hardship. Subsequently, the local economy’s gradual deterioration would lead to widespread economic complications in the nation in its entirety. Unit banks were not backed by a large and strong financial institution as branch banks would be, and during the impending financial crisis, the US would see a lot of its unit banks close down as they were incapable of dealing with the sudden and ultimately detrimental pressure on their funds.
