Abstract

Is banking sector concentration associated with negative outcomes internationally? This paper finds that the answer is "no." Greater bank concentration is not strongly associated with negative outcomes in terms of financial sector development, industrial competition, political and legal system integrity, economic growth or banking sector fragility. The paper also shows that (1) Chile does not standout as having a particularly concentrated banking system, and (2) Chilean bank concentration has changed remarkably little over the last 16 year.
