- Well Structured
It seems there can be too much of a good thing. After the global financial crisis, policy makers speculated whether they could have mandated a specific level of capital for banks that would have mitigated the crisis’s impact. Economists Jihad Dagher, Giovanni Dell’Ariccia, Lev Ratnovski and Hui Tong find that a higher capital requirement adds critical value up to a certain point, with diminishing returns beyond that. getAbstract suggests this succinct but informative article to regulators and bank executives still wrestling with how to ensure a safe financial system.
