Banking Fragility & Disclosure: International Evidence
No wp874, William Davidson Institute Working Papers Series from William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan
Motivated by recent public policy debates on the role of market discipline in banking stability, the study examines the impact of greater bank disclosure in mitigating the likelihood of systemic banking crisis. In a cross sectional study of banking systems across forty-nine countries in the nineties, it finds evidence that banking crises are less likely in countries with regulatory regimes that require extensive bank disclosure and stringent auditing.
