This was not the case in the current financial crisis which was the result of a systemic fallacy believed by all institutions – namely that there would never be a widespread decline in a key asset category like housing. If there had been a larger number of smaller organizations; then ‘too big to fail’ would just have become ‘too many to fail’.
