James A. Wilcox and Yukihiro Yasuda

Journal of Financial Intermediation, 2019, vol. 37, issue C, 45-57

Abstract: We analyzed the loan guarantees that the Japanese government provided for banks’ loans to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). We modeled and estimated how much and under what conditions loan guarantees affected banks’ risk-taking and banks’ non-guaranteed lending.
