An Evaluation of the Northern Rock Failure 2007-2008

Northern Rock Failure 2007-2008 Dissertation – The focus of this study is to gain insight into the justification of the UK’s Tripartite Standing Committee Lender of last resort (LLR) liquidity support to the Northern Rock given the oft cited risk of systemic collapse ensuing from bank failure. The sample includes 2 case studies; one from the Scandinavian banking crisis and one from the Japanese banking crises.

The author investigates the causal mechanisms of failure, authority and regulatory prescriptions and post crisis economic costs in terms of GDP and welfare loss in these cases in order to determine the justification for the bail out of Northern Rock. Definitions of both the start and conclusion of systemic crisis are provided per Bordo et al. 2001. The objectives of this study are further:

  • To understand the rationale for regulation in consideration of systemic financial collapse and its potential linkage to the Northern Rock case
  • To understand the financial and economic consequences of authority intervention post LLR support to the banking industry and the domestic economy
  • To understand how banks are involved in an economy to provoke lender of last resort (LLR) and support measures given negative externality and market failure arguments .
