Abstract

We incorporate a banking sector with balance sheet frictions into a model of a small open economy and compare the effectiveness of capital controls and that of macroprudential regulation. We show that the welfare-improving effect of capital controls is larger than that of macroprudential regulation if the degree of financial friction between domestic banks and foreign investors is high, whereas the welfare-improving effect of macroprudential regulation is larger than that of capital controls if the degree of financial friction is low. Comparing two economies, one with and one without "liability dollarization," we also find that the welfare-improving effect of capital controls is larger than that of macroprudential regulation in the presence of "liability dollarization."
