Causes of banking crises revisited
AbstractWe examine to what extent there exists heterogeneity in the causes of a banking crisis. For this purpose, we use a random coefficient logit model including 110 countries between 1970 and 2007. We conclude that there exists significant heterogeneity in the causes of a banking crisis. We find that a high credit growth, a negative GDP growth and a high real interest rate are on average the most important causes of a banking crisis. However, none of the variables has a significant impact in more than 60 percent of the banking crises. Besides we find that the impact of the determinants differ between systemic and non-systemic crises and across stages of economic development.
