Hyman Minsky developed a model that records the cycle of a financial event leading to economic boom followed by financial crisis. This model would be called the Minsky Model. Although developed and merely a blip on the radar, it wasn’t until a decade after his death in 1997 that the Minsky Model sparked an interest following the financial crisis of 2008.

When examining banks and the roles they play for expanding credits through loans, banks have a very unique role to play for benefitting creditors and lenders.
