Banking globalization, local lending, and labor market effects: Micro-level evidence from Brazil

Felix Noth and Matias Ossandon Busch

No 11/2017, BOFIT Discussion Papers from Bank of Finland, Institute for Economies in Transition

Abstract: This paper estimates the effect of a foreign funding shock to banks in Brazil after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008. Our robust results show that bank-specic shocks to Brazilian parent banks negatively affected lending by their individual branches and trigger real economic consequences in Brazilian municipalities: More affected regions face restrictions in aggregated credit and show weaker labor market performance in the aftermath which documents the transmission mechanism of the global financial crisis to local labor markets in emerging countries. The results represent relevant information for regulators concerned with the real effects of cross-border liquidity shocks.
