The IMF recently put out an update to their Systemic Banking Crises Database, a report that examines data from banking crises that have occurred between 1970 and today.
The paper takes a look at the frequency of banking crises over the last 40 years.
It also examines how they relate to currency and sovereign debt crises and shows common policy responses to such events.
Note: T denotes the starting year of the banking crisis.
In responding to a banking crisis emerging economies sometimes freeze deposits while advanced ones provide more liquidity
Advanced banking systems would take big losses if their assets were marked to market (ie written down to market value)
