Abstract

It is clear that bank crises occur when there is excess expenditure on investment due to low generated income emanating from bad credit management, market inefficiencies and operational risk. These undoubtedly trigger panic withdrawals by depositors for fear of bank collapse.In fact, the failure of these two banks is attributable to varied factors spanning from non-monitoring of employee activities, dubious accounting practices, unethical practices by management, over indulging in risky and unsecured investments in derivatives. It is recommended that, governments create legal rules to reduce externalities.
