Prudential regulation, national differences and banking stability

Angela Maddaloni and Alessandro Scopelliti ()

Research Bulletin, 2019, vol. 58

Abstract: What role does prudential regulation play in the prevention of banking crises? Before the financial crisis there were important national differences in the implementation of the EU framework for capital regulation. This article suggests that these differences had important implications for the resilience of banks during the crisis and that, generally, banks that were subject to less stringent prudential regulation before the crisis were more likely to require some form of public support when the crisis came. JEL Classification: G01, G21, G28
