Monetary policy and bank lending in France: are there asymmetries?

  • Loupias, Claire
  • Savignac, Frédérique
  • Sevestre, Patrick

This paper aims at providing some empirical evidence about the impact of monetary policy on bank lending at the microeconomic level. We estimate a model close to that proposed by Kashyap and Stein (2000) using a panel data set comprising 312 banks observed quarterly over the period 1993-2000. We find that bank lending decreases after a monetary policy tightening. Moreover, as in several other Euro area economies, banks' liquidity appears to impact significantly on their lending behavior JEL Classification: E51, E52, G21
