The Bank Lending Channel Transmission of Monetary Policy in the EMU: A Case Study of Portugal
AbstractThis paper confirms the importance of bank performance to the credit-lending channel of monetary policy in the countries of the EMU and particularly in Portugal during recent years. The paper's main innovations are (1) its use of macro and microeconomic statistical data; (2) the introduction of three calculated bank-performance indicators—asset structure, conversion of clients' resources into credits and financial margins—into an adaptation of the Bernanke and Binder model; and (3) the use of panel data estimations not only to demonstrate the importance of the bank lending channel, but also to analyse the effects of the calculated indicators in bank-lending growth.
