But there is wide disagreement over how serious the future economic impact of the S&L bailout will be, and there is also disagreement over what should be done to prevent a similar crisis from happening again. Nevertheless, some effects are already being felt, and it is clear that Americans should prepare for major changes in the way they save and borrow money.

Origins and causes of the S&L debacle : a blueprint for reform

Two Financial Crises Compared: The Savings and Loan Debacle and the Mortgage Mess - Graphic - NYTimes.com. Federal Reserve History. In the 1980s, the financial sector suffered through a period of distress that was focused on the nation’s savings and loan (S&L) industry.

Federal Reserve History

Inflation rates and interest rates both rose dramatically in the late 1970s and early 1980s. This produced two problems for S&Ls. First, the interest rates that they could pay on deposits were set by the federal government and were substantially below what could be earned elsewhere, leading savers to withdraw their funds. Second, S&Ls primarily made long-term fixed-rate mortgages. When interest rates rose, these mortgages lost a considerable amount of value, which essentially wiped out the S&L industry’s net worth. What Are S&Ls? S&Ls have their origins in the social goal of pursuing homeownership. S&Ls, sometimes called thrifts, are generally smaller than banks, both in number and in the assets under their control. A Turbulent History. History of the Eighties. History of the Eighties.

New Justice Department's FIRREA Cases Against Banks: Holding The Victim Responsible. The government’s ever-evolving response response to the United States financial crisis has come full circle, as civil Justice Department Attorneys seek to rely on legislation enacted to protect financial institutions from fraud to sue those very same institutions.

New Justice Department's FIRREA Cases Against Banks: Holding The Victim Responsible

Recently, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has initiated a number of law suits under the “obscure” Financial Institutions Reform Recovery Enforcement Act (FIRREA). FIRREA was enacted in 1989 in response to the massive failure of almost half of America’s savings and loan institutions. In its 24 year history, the law typically has been used to bring suit against officers and directors of failed institutions. The government now seeks to expand the statute’s reach to include the institutions themselves. Bibliotek.dk. EBSCO - Business baser. Emerald Insight. Next Generation Federal Digital System.
