We provide empirical evidence of a three-stage cyclical pattern in an economy, following our investigation of the financial crisis of the past, where a gradual deterioration of financial structures occur that leads the economy into recession: The 'sustained economic activity' stage, characterised by the 'booming economic activity' stage. Unsolicited actions of many of the financial markets' players operate during both of these stages to push the economy into a 'booming economic activity'; the next stage is the formation of a 'bubble' and gradual enlargement of this credit 'bubble' in the sector; in the next stage this bubble ruptures and results in the financial crises in that sector. The economy thus experiences a big confidence shock and failure of financial institutions. The study makes policy recommendations to financial markets players and regulators.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||MIICEMA 2012: 13th Malaysia-Indonesia International Conference on Economics, Management and Accounting - Asia Emerging Economy Toward Global Economy Integration, Palembang, Indonesia, 18th - 20th October, 2012||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of The 13th Malaysia-Indonesia International Conference on Economics, Management and Accounting (MIICEMA), v.1, p. 842-857||Publisher:||Sriwijaya University||Place of Publication:||Palembang, Indonesia||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 217|
