Abstract: This case study on subprime crisis concentrates on liquidity - an asset's property of being traded quickly and at low cost. Particular attention is devoted to determinants of liquidity, liquidity risk and central bank intervention - all that have arisen due to liquidity problems at Northern Rock, due to the subprime crisis. With the help of this case, students will not only understand the theoretical underpinnings of liquidity, but also analyse the credit market conditions that have led to spread of subprime contagion to UK, resulting in collapse of Northern Rock.
