This paper studies the responses of residential property and equity prices,
inflation and economic activity to monetary policy shocks in 17 countries,
using data spanning 1986-2006. We estimate VARs for individual economies
and panel VARs in which we distinguish between groups of countries on the
basis of the characteristics of their financial systems. The results suggest that
using monetary policy to offset asset price movements in order to guard
against financial instability may have large effects on economic activity.
This paper analyzes the cyclical effects of bank capital requirements in a simple model with credit market imperfections. Lending rates are set as a premium over the cost of borrowing from the central bank, with the premium itself depending on collateral.

Mathematical finance and financial engineering have been rapidly expanding fields of science over the past three decades. The main reason behind this phenomenon has been the success of sophisticated quantitative methodologies in helping professionals to manage financial risks. The newly developed credit derivatives industry has grown around the need to handle credit risk, which is one of the fundamental factors of financial risk. In recent years, we have witnessed a tremendous acceleration in research efforts aimed at better apprehending, modeling and hedging of this kind of risk
The empirical relationship between capital controls and the financial development of credit and equity markets is examined. We extend the literature on this subject along a number of dimensions.Specifically, we
(1) investigate a substantially broader set of proxy measures of financial development;
(2) create and utilize a new index based on the IMF measures of exchange restrictions that incorporates a measure of the intensity of capital controls; and (3) extend the previous literature by systematically examining the implications of institutional (legal) factors.

In the last decade rating-based models have become very popular in credit risk management. These systems use the rating of a company as the decisive variable to evaluate the default risk of a bond or loan. The popularity is due to the straightforwardness of the approach, and to the upcoming new capital accord (Basel II), which allows banks to base their capital requirements on internal as well as external rating systems.

The authors study the effect of financial crises on trade credit in a sample of 890 firms in six emerging economies. They find that although provision of trade credit increases right after the crisis, it consequently collapses in the following months and years. The authors observe that firms with weaker financial position (for example, high pre-crisis level of short-term debt and low cash stocks and cash flows) are more likely to reduce trade credit provided to their customers.

market risks and counterparty risks for the purpose of calculating the capital adequacy ratios

subject to the Financial Services Agency (JFSA) ordinance under the Banking Act.

The Committee evaluated the case for lowering the 20% CCF under the Basel II
standardised and FIRB risk-based measures. The CCF is relevant for short-term self-
liquidating trade letters of credit arising from the movement of goods. Essentially, it reduces
capital requirements by 80% as compared to positions that are subject to a 100% CCF.
The current 20% CCF has been part of the Basel capital framework since their inception in

In a competitive world of symmetric information
and costless enforcement, credit contracts
could be written conditional on borrower behavior.
Borrowers would then have access
to loans under any interest rate-collateral
combination that would yield lenders a zero
expected profit. However, as a large literature
has shown, information asymmetries
and enforcement costs make such conditional
contracting infeasible and restrict the set of
available contracts, eliminating as incentive incompatible
