Abstract: This paper assesses the tensions in the distribution of short-term loans in France over 1994-2013. It is difficult to distinguish if a decrease of granted loans results from a drop in firms' demand due to a slowdown in activity or from a restrictive distribution of credits by banks. This is an essential issue because each scenario calls for different responses in terms of public policy. Using a macro-econometric model, we show that periods of tensions appear in the wake of recessions (in 1994-95 and 2009-10), what could at that time slow down the economic recovery. These episodes are caused by shocks to the supply of credit, due to a sharp increase in bad loans and by a rise in demand of credit in a context of recovery of business activity.
