History of the 80s

History of the Eighties — Lessons for the Future, a study prepared by the FDIC’s Division of Research and Statistics, presents:
  • A detailed analysis of the complex combination of causes (economic, financial, legislative and regulatory) that led to the extraordinary number of bank failures in the 1980s and early 1990s.
  • An evaluation of the legislative, regulatory and supervisory responses to those failures.
  • An assessment of the implications the experiences of the 1980s and early 1990s hold for deposit insurance and bank supervision in the future.

History of the Eighties — Lessons for the Future was published in December 1997 and is now available through the FDIC’s Public Information Center.
