Formatted abstract This thesis is concerned with- the issue of why 'financial crises' have proliferated in occurrence within the modern capitalist economies over the last two decades. The scope of this thesis involves the application of Hyman P. Minsky's Financial Instability Hypothesis to the Australian financial system. It is argued that this F.I.H. readily explains why financial crises have occurred within the Australian financial system.. This is clearly evidenced by the occurrences of the Bank of Adelaide/F.C.A. crisis in the state of South Australia and the 1975/6 Permanent Building Society crisis in the state of Queensland. Overall it is argued that Minsky's F.l.H. provides a plausible, satisfactory explanation as to why financial crises have occurred within the financial systems of capitalist economies.
