Financial Deregulation and Prudent Regulation: The Case of Mexico during the 1990s
The purpose of this paper is to address the process of financial deregulation and liberalisation of the Mexican banking system during the 1980s and the 1990s. After a review of the theoretical underpinnings of financial repression and liberalisation, the paper provides evidence on the magnitude of financial repression which existed prior to the financial reforms. It is argued that the transition period from financial repression to a more liberal financial market was complemented with the provision of prudent regulation contained in the Credit Institution Act of 1990.
