Liquidity Provision And Banking Crises With Heterogeneous Agents

Author

Listed:
  • Fontenla, Matías

Abstract

Incentive compatibility constraints that produce contracts where short-term funds choose not to deposit will prevent banking crises, but at the cost of losing the insurance function of banks. Restricting short-term deposits may not be optimal at all times, since the cost of doing so may be greater than the expected loss in allowing crises to occur with positive probability.
