There are materials on the various causes, including deregulation, congressional attempts to “band aid” the “festering” S&L problem, and federal efforts to prop-up failing S&Ls, implementation of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989, federal seizure and liquidation of insolvent thrifts, prosecution of S&L management for fraudulent lending practices, and congressional support for a bailout.”
Source material comes from the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library.
