Project Summary

The real effects of bank capital regulation on international bank lending. This project aims to analyse the effect of risk-based capital regulation on international bank lending and real economic activity in borrowing countries. The Global Financial Crisis and financial turmoil highlighted serious failings in global banks’ regulatory framework. Since the international financial system is not resilient, redesigning capital regulation as part of wider reforms is urgently needed. In light of this, Australia’s latest Financial System Inquiry advocated higher bank capital requirements. This project expects to raise awareness among national and international policy makers and prudential regulators working towards further banking regulatory reforms.
