Improved financial sector regulation and supervision ensures the financial institution take adequate steps to manage risks. Appropriate financial sector policies can stop help to establish deep and liquid domestics capital markets which will reduce the incentive for excessive borrowings. On general, improved financial sector regulation and supervision can help prevent crises by making national economics less vulnerable to adverse developments at home and abroad. Financial sector crises have occurred in many countries in recent times; both in developed as well emerging market economics. These crises have resulted in substantial macro-economic and fiscal costs. Bank failures are widely perceived to have a greater adverse effect on the economy than the failure of the other types of businesses. They are viewed to be more damaging than other failures because of the fear that they may spread in domino.  Fashion through out the banking system, feeling solvent went as well as insolvent banks.
