Capital Flows, Cross-Border Banking and Global Liquidity

No 19038, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: We investigate global factors associated with cross-border capital flows. We formulate a model of gross capital flows through the international banking system and derive a closed form solution that highlights the leverage cycle of global banks as being a prime determinant of the transmission of financial conditions across borders. We then test the predictions of our model in a panel study of 46 countries and find that global factors dominate local factors as determinants of banking sector capital flows.
