Spatial Competition. Empirical Evidence from Small-scale Banking
AbstractStylised facts suggest that there is some "spatial structure" in the dynamics of cross-border lending of Austrian regional banks that seems to be closely related to the eastward enlargement of the European Union. This short paper provides evidence that a stark space-related dependency of competition has been at work governing the cross-border lending behaviour of the Austrian regional banks since 1995.
