Fintech, Cryptocurrencies, and CBDC: Financial Structural Transformation in China”

Fintech and decentralized finance have penetrated all areas of the financial system and have improved financial inclusion in the last decade.

Conference Paper
Bank competition and the role of regulation

Market discipline for financial institutions can be imposed not only from the liability side, as has often been stressed in the literature on the use of subordinated debt, but also from the asset side.

The Interplay Among Financial Regulations, Resilience, and Growth

Interconnectedness has been an important source of market failures, leading to the recent financial crisis. Large financial institutions tend to have similar exposures and thus exert externalities on each other through various mechanisms. Regulators have responded by putting more regulations in place with many layers of regulatory complexity, leading to ambiguity and market manipulation. Mispricing risk in complex models and arbitrage opportunities through regulatory loopholes have provided incentives for certain activities to become more concentrated in regulated entities and for other ...
