The Housing Boom and Bust in Spain: Impact of the Securitisation Model and Dynamic Provisioning

First, we describe the main features of the recent housing cycle. Secund, we summarize the Spanish securitisation model. Third, we deal with dynamic provisions and in the last section, we present some conclusions.
