In 2006, with rising interest rates and declining house prices, the subprime
mortgage borrowers in the US were seriously affected, with several of them
failing to make payments on their mortgage loans. Over time, the crisis
intensified, with increasing numbers of delinquencies leading to foreclosures,
and ending up in repossessions. The secondary mortgage market was also affected
by the crisis, and with the contagion spreading beyond sub prime securities,
liquidity in the credit market dried up as banks and other financial
institutions, fearing counterparty risks, became increasingly reluctant to lend
to each other.
