An analysis of inefficiencies in banking: a stochastic cost frontier approach

This paper examines the properties of X-inefficiencies in U.S. banking firms. We find that, after controlling for scale differences, the average small size banking firm is less efficient than the aerate large firm. Smaller firms also exhibit higher variation in X-inefficiencies than their larger counterparts. X-inefficiency on average appears to be declining over time. However, the rank ordering of X-inefficiency is significantly correlated with smaller banking firms' stock returns. ; Published in FRBSF Economic Review (1996 no. 2, p. 16-26)

Working Paper
Does distance matter in banking?

Deregulation and technological change have reduced the transactions costs that led to the dominance of local financial service suppliers, leading some to question if distance still matters in banking. This debate has been particularly acute in small business banking, where transactions costs are believed to be particularly high. This paper provides a detailed review of the literature on distance in banking markets, highlighting the reasons why geographic proximity is believed to be important and examining the changes that may have affected its importance. Relying on new data from the 2003 ...
