  • Brewer, Minton, and Moser (2000), we evaluate an equation relating the determinants of C&I lending and the impact of derivatives on C&I lending activity. The major finding in this study is that the interest-rate derivatives allow commercial banks to lessen their systematic exposure to changes in interest rates, which enables banks to increase their lending activities without increasing the total risk level faced by the banks. This consequently increases the banks’ abilities to provide more intermediation services.

  • In this section we look at data concerning 10-year government bond yields. Although our main interest is the default risk, this presents only one channel through which fiscal policies can affect long-term yields. There are other channels operating through monetary-fiscal interaction, which should be reflected in the evolution of yields. Therefore we start our descriptive analysis in this section by looking at yields, forward rates and inflation expectations at a weekly frequency. Then we move to an analysis of interest rate swap spreads, at a weekly and daily frequency.

  • The different views presented in the previous section suggest different aspects of how the SGP could affect capital market expectations about future developments, and hence prices for fixed government securities. If a strict interpretation of the SGP reduces budgetary flexibility and short-term growth prospects, it might lead to lower short or medium term interest rates. Conversely, if the central bank considers any breach or lax implementation of the Pact as an indication of an unduly expansionary fiscal policy leading to higher inflation, it could foreclose a monetary easing.

  • Governments everywhere responded to the panic by pumping more equity into banks, greatly expanding the ambit of their deposit insurance, and opening up various central bank discount windows for distress borrowers. This gigantic effort seems to have reduced counterparty party risk, the fear of bank failure, in interbank trading. Figure 1 shows the one- month LIBOR rate coming down close to the Fed funds rate, now near zero, by mid 2009.

  • One final word of caution. It is true that imperfect asset substitutability does give the government or the central bank an additional policy tool. But there is a qualification: Goodhart’s Law will eventually apply to debt operations. 14 The central bank may virtually fix the yield of its target bond. But if central bank action is known to have concentrated on a particular maturity, then its information content is compromised. Investors may judge that such paper is overpriced relative to paper of other maturities, and therefore avoid buying it.

  • Keynes’s liquidity preference theory touched on the maturity transformation issue. He argued that the private sector’s willingness to assume liquidity and maturity risks is not well-anchored in fundamentals. Instead it is strongly influenced by subjective factors. Hence his policy prescription was that government debt issuance should “accommodate the preferences of the public for different maturities”. It was, he argued, socially desirable that risk-averse investors should be offered some minimum, safe return on their capital.

  • This paper examines the pollution control policies applied in China’s paper industry during the period of economic reform from 1982 to 1992. The paper industry is the source of ten percent of China’s industrial wastewater emissions and one fourth of its chemical oxygen demand. It is the largest source of rural environmental pollution. The very small size of china’s mills is comparable to that of papermills in many developing countries and this small size itself creates an interesting problem.

  • By encouraging these lending practices, usury ceilings may fail to give consumers the protection and benefits that they were intended to provide. That is, usury laws may actually reduce the amount of credit that is available to low income or inexperienced borrowers. Low-priced credit is not useful to those who cannot meet the requirements for obtaining it. Thus, when lenders ration credit by some means other than price, first-time borrowers, small borrowers, low-income and high-risk borrowers are likely to find it more difficult to obtain credit.

  • Usury laws establish a legal maximum interest rate (or price) that lenders may charge for a loan or extension of credit. These laws are, in effect, a form of price control. When a usury law is introduced, it may have no impact on the credit market or it may alter the way in which price and quantity are determined. Exactly what happens depends on where the usury ceiling is relative to the market rate. When the legal ceiling is above the market rate of interest, the law has no effect at all. The market forces of supply and demand are not bound by the usury...
