Annals of the University of Petrosani, Economics, 2005, vol. 5, 95-100

Abstract: The impact of bank regulation on risk-taking behavior has been a major focus during periods of severe financial crises. While there is still an ongoing debate whether regulation is beneficial at all, regulation is an evolving process and a number of regulatory guidelines have been issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and by national regulators over time.
