Theories of the Banking Firm: A Review of the Literature

Author

Listed:
  • Swank, Job

Abstract

This paper reviews the theoretical literature on the banking firm. Apart from studies dealing purely with the reasons why banks exist the survey is fairly comprehensive in that it covers the main categories of macroeconomic models of bank behavior. The emphasis is on recent work, which also includes modern, information-based, theories of loan commitments, credit rationing, collateral and the bank-client relationship.
