NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- With three banks that were shuttered Friday, there have been 133 U.S. bank and thrift failures this year, more than five times as many as in 2008. Tougher regulations may accelerate the pace next year.
The implosion of several large residential mortgage lenders in 2008 gave way to troubled community lenders, which were hobbled by commercial-construction and real-estate loans that soured.
All bank and thrift failures for 2008 and 2009 are detailed in TheStreet.com's interactive bank-failure map:
