In the economy a too big to fail firm (TBTF) exists and it is defined as one that its complexity, size, critical functions, and interconnections are in the sense that in case the firm goes into liquidation unexpectedly, the rest of the economy and financial system will face severe consequences. The government provides support to TBTF companies not because they favor them but because they recognize implications for an advanced economy of allowing a disorderly failure outweighs the cost of avoiding the failure.
