Competitive effects of Basel II on U.S. bank credit card lending

The authors analyze the potential competitive effects of the proposed Basel II capital regulations on U.S. bank credit card lending.

Working Paper
The potential impact of explicit Basel II operational risk capital charges on the competitive environment of processing banks in the United States

Certain U.S. banks concentrated in processing-related business lines ? which have significant operational risk ? could thus face an increase in overall minimum regulatory capital requirements.

This paper evaluates these concerns.
