The impact of explicit deposit insurance on market discipline

This paper examines the interaction between market discipline and explicit or implicit deposit insurance using the experiences of Bolivia during the period 1998:1 to 2003:12. The country-specific circumstances during this period allow us to investigate the effect of explicit deposit insurance on market discipline in a setup that resembles a controlled experiment.

The results also suggest that ...

The data also include public ...

Reexamining the empirical relation between loan risk and collateral: the roles of collateral characteristics and types

This paper offers a possible explanation for the conflicting empirical results in the literature concerning the relation between loan risk and collateral.

For our sample, collateral overall is associated with lower loan risk premiums and a higher probability of ex post loan nonperformance (delinquency or default). This finding suggests that the dominant reason collateral is ...
