Difficulties with the Non-Performing Assets
Owners do not obtain a market return on their capital. In the worst case, if the bank fails, owners lose their assets, in modern times; this may affect a broad pool of shareholders.
Depositors do not obtain a market return on savings. In the most horrible case if the bank fails, depositors lose their assets or uninsured balance. Banks also reallocate losses to other borrowers by charging higher interest rates. Lower deposit rates and higher lending rates repress savings and financial markets, which hampers economic development.
