With the collapse of US mortgage market due to sub-prime lending, the global financial system is completely shattered. The UK financial markets were also not able to resist to this economy fall-down. The combination of credit crunch and falling housing market resulted in a recession in the UK market (Richardson,2011). Recession can be defined as fall in real GDP of a country. Alternatively, it can be defined as, for the two consecutive quarters, if economic growth shows negative trend; i.e. if there is a fall in the real output of the country for consecutively six months (King and Cushman, 1997).
