Abstract: We present the first study that jointly examines how regulatory interventions and capital support affect troubled banks' risk taking and liquidity creation. Using instrumental variables, we document that regulatory interventions and capital support both succeed in reducing bank risk taking. Regulatory interventions also trigger decreases in liquidity creation, pointing towards potential social costs of making troubled banks safer. These effects materialize quickly, persist in the long run, and are not offset by competitors' actions. Our findings provide novel insights into how supervision affects bank conduct and informs the debate about the design of bank bailouts.
