No 17/2004, BOFIT Discussion Papers from Bank of Finland, Institute for Economies in Transition

Abstract: This paper provides micro and macroeconomic analysis of the economic role of banks in the Russian economy.Using a large panel containing Russian enterprises' balance sheet and income statement data, we evaluate the determinants of bank financing.Econometric model put out the existence of liquidity providing activity of Russian banks.Even though the overall liquidity provision system suffers from certain deficiencies, we demonstrate its importance in the macroeconomic context, using time series econometric analysis. Bank credit appears to be a significant factor in explaining the non-payment dynamics and use of informal financing.Finally, the uncertainty concept helps us to understand the reasons for a limitation of Russian banks in their liquidity providing role. Keywords: liquidity, finance, transition, Russia, uncertainty, banks, inter-enterprise credit.JEL classification: D80, G21
