Description:
Workshop "Banks ?? how big is big enough?"
Location:
Basel, Bank for International Settlements, Switzerland
Subject:
One outcome of the recent crisis has been further consolidation of the global banking system. There are economic reasons for anticipating economies of scale in banking. Size and scope can be used to diversify risks. Aside from diversification, there may be technical and relationship lending scale economies for some bank business lines. Some may also argue that the growth of large global banks has economic growth externalities. The organisers of the workshop solicit theoretical and empirical papers on these and related topics. Submissions in other areas of risk management, banking supervision and financial stability are also welcome. [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
