What are the indicators of a country being in a financial crisis?

I would like to know both about the acute and recovery phase.

I am trying to make a point to our company that we are not growing despite the financial crisis being over.

  • $\begingroup$ Also, in case of a structured financial crisis. You will see real economy to be affected at a later stage. Initially, the numbers in the shadow banking system, the banking system etc will start to affect. That is why it becomes difficult to track financial crises. $\endgroup$ May 4 '16 at 14:14

    $\begingroup$ Please write the question more clearly. It looks like what you wanted to ask is: "What are the indicators of a country being in a financial crisis?". Also, the crisis can be thought of as having an acute period and then a recovery or aftermath that might be quite long. So you might want to state that you care about whether we are still in the recovery phase, or we are all done with the crisis. $\endgroup$
