The Model Structure of Discount Window Borrowing
AbstractThis article investigates the specification of discount window borrowing. The author establishes empirically that the borrowing function is heteroskedastic and nonlinear. Subsequently, he proceeds to propose a simple theoretical framework that generates endogenously these anomalies. In particular, the author demonstrates that such phenomena are precipitated by the response of depository institutions to discount credit rationing and Federal Reserve collateral limitations.
