The case for central bank liquidity provision as a public-private partnership
AbstractDuring the past year financial institutions around the world have faced severe liquidity problems as a result of the crisis in the shadow banking sector brought on by the rapid development of structured products plus a potent mixture of high leverage and over the counter (OTC) financial derivatives. This paper explores a number of issues relating to this crisis, but in particular it examines lessons relating to the proper governance and supervision of the UK banking industry. Importantly for every issue I raise I have tried to offer some proposed solution which I believe will at least improve the current situation.
