Understanding the dichotomy of financial development: credit deepening versus credit excess

Alfonso Ugarte-Ruiz ()

No 1501, Working Papers from BBVA Bank, Economic Research Department

Abstract: In this paper we introduce several methodological innovations in an empirical analysis of the determinants of the private Credit-to-GDP ratio, which allow us to estimate the long-term sustainable level of credit deepening in a country and its deviations. We also find new evidence of different effects of some macroeconomic variables in the long, medium and short-term on the credit ratio.
