Liquidity regulation and the lender of last resort
The recent subprime crisis has brought back to light proposals to regulate banks’ liquidity as a complement to solvency regulations.

Another crucial question is the allocation of responsibilities between the Central Bank, the Banking Supervisors and the Treasury in the management of banking crises.
