Insolvency crisis

An agent (such as business, individual or a bank) is insolvent when its debt relative to its income is so high that it will not be able to pay back its debt and the interest on it (i.e. there is an unsustainable debt). An insolvency crisis may require some form of debt restructuring / debt relief to lower default risk.
