ABSTRACT

This study aims to find the relationship between legal origin and the extent that a country was hit by the 2008 Great Financial Crisis. Four legal origins of 91 countries were researched and analyzed through regression analysis. This article draws the stock market figures to see how the stock market changes from 2005 to 2015 and does the regression to analyze whether it is the legal origin that affect the extent to which a country was hit by the 2008 GFC. These results indicate that the legal origin is a significant reason affecting the extent that a country was hit by the 2008 GFC and common law countries could recover faster and better than civil law countries.
