Bankenabgabe: Richtig oder gar nicht!
Taxing banks in favor of a mutual fund to safeguard future financial stability has been subject to an intensive public debate. The currently proposed solution, however, will not provide any protection against systemic risks. We argue that using tax revenues to reduce public debt would bring down the risk premium that government has to pay and thereby improves the capability of economic policy to stabilize the economy in future times of distress. Anything else is associated with the risk that bank capital is devastated which would hamper the economic recovery.
