Abstract: This study is aimed to conceptually engineer the effects of hot potatoes (bad loans) in the banking system. The study’s research design uses elementary concepts of graph theory comprising of mappings of systemic behavior of contemporary banking. Issues have been formally underpinned, described, and visualized through directed and linear graphs. Findings of the study show that it is an inherent feature of the banking system to generate hot potatoes and allow them to sit there. It creates heat in the system by way of latency, turgescence, propagation, and concurrent cyclicality. These predicaments of systemic crises of banking deteriorate the sustainability of the system. The pilot study (using classical t -Test) conducted as part of this research has validated the theoretical argument aforementioned. The study provides new insights into these die-hard issues. It helps refine the agenda of future research in banking.
