No 12002, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: We investigate bank lending patterns and their determinants in Europe and the United States over 2008-2014. Specifically, we relate bank characteristics prior to the financial crisis to their lending behaviour during and after the crisis period. Our analysis confirms the existence of a bank lending channel. This channel seems stronger in Europe than in the United States, especially if we look at corporate loans rather than at the whole loan portfolio.
