Gli alti livelli di NPL indeboliscono la capacitÃ delle banche di erogare credito?
Paolo Angelini ()
Moneta e Credito, 2018, vol. 71, issue 282, 129-138
It has recently been argued that high non-performing loan stocks can limit banksâ€™ lending ability, and thus impair the effectiveness of monetary policy. The present article questions this claim and argues for a more nuanced view. It points to the lack of serious theoretical analysis of the relationship between non-performing loan stocks and credit dynamics; the empirical evidence is also scarce. Policy should focus on maximising the â€˜cure rateâ€™ rather than eliminating non-performing loans entirely.
