LES APPROCHES CLASSIQUES DU PRtTEUR EN DERNIER RESSORT : DE BARING A HA WTREY
AbstractThere is not a single classical approach to the lender of last resort, but several classical approaches to the lender of last resort. They have been successively developed by Baring, Thornton, the Banking School, Bagehot and Hawtrey. If these approaches converge in stressing that the lender of last resort only intervenes in favour of illiquid but solvent banks, they diverge concerning the link between currency and credit, the discount rate policy, the analysis of the causes of its intervention and the nature of what it lends. Moreover, Hawtrey developed the foundations of the analysis of the international lender of last resort.
