Description

Bank Liquidity Creation and Financial Crises is a novel benchmarking tool that delivers a consistent, logical presentation of liquidity creation and integrates regulatory measures to address questions of research and policy interest that can be easily understood by readers with no advanced or specialized industry knowledge.

Authors Allen Berger and Christa Bouwman examine ways to measure liquidity creation, how much liquidity banks create in different countries, the differences among five financial crises that occurred over the past three decades and during normal times, the effects of monetary policy (including interest rate policy, lender of last resort, and quantitative easing), the effects of capital, the effects of regulatory interventions, and the effects of bailouts.

Narrowing the gap between the "academic world" (focused on theories) and the "practitioner world" (dedicated to solving real-world problems), this book is a helpful new tool for evaluating a bank's performance over time and comparing it to its peer group.




Focuses on liquidity creation for firms and households, distinguishing it from other contextsDirectly links bank liquidity to financial crisesAddresses questions of research and policy interest, especially on liquidity creation outside the United StatesIncludes such hot-button topics as the effects of monetary policy (including interest rate policy, lender of last resort, and quantitative easing), the effects of capital, the effects of regulatory interventions, and the effects of bailouts

Review quote

"A key economic function of banks is to create liquidity in the economy, financing illiquid assets with liquid labilities and enhancing overall funding of investment projects in the economy. Knowing how to measure how much liquidity is being created at any point in time is of central importance for economists, policymakers and bankers. This book, based on the path-breaking empirical measure for bank liquidity creation developed by the authors in their earlier published research,  provides an exhaustive and enlightening discussion of the variety of interesting issues related to bank liquidity creation, including its implications for bank stability and regulation. A must read!"  --Anjan Thakor, Washington University in St. Louis

"This text provides an excellent insight into the features of banks and the dynamics of financial intermediation. The authors provide terrific coverage of the liquidity creation process and how financial crises inhibit such activity. This is an essential guide for all students of banking and financial system behavior."  --Philip Molyneux, Bangor University
