External deficits and non-performing loans in the recent financial crisis

Karlo Kauko

Economics Letters, 2012, vol. 115, issue 2, 196-199

Abstract: This paper analyses the deterioration of bank credit quality during the recent financial crisis in a cross-national sample. Rapid credit growth in 2000–2005 predicted the relative amount of non-performing loans only if it was combined with a current account deficit.
