Why Are There So Many Banking Crises? The Politics and Policy of Bank Regulation

By Jean-Charles Rochet | Go to book overview

Preface and Acknowledgments

In November 2000, I was invited by the University of Leuven to give the Gaston Eyskens Lectures. The main topic of my research at the time provided the title: “Why are there so many banking crises?” These lectures were based on the content of ten articles: four had already been published in academic journals and the other six were still work in progress.

Since then, I have been invited to teach these lectures in many other places: the Oslo BI School of Management (March 2002), the Bank of Finland (April 2002), the Bank of England (May 2002), Wuhan University (November 2002 and December 2004), and the Bank of Uruguay (August 2004). Now that all these articles have been published in academic journals, I have collected them into a single volume that will, I hope, be useful to all economists—either from academic institutions, central banks, financial services authorities or from private banks—who are interested in this difficult topic. I thank my coauthors—Jean-Paul Décamps, Xavier Freixas, Bruno Parigi, Benoît Roger, Jean Tirole, and Xavier Vives—for allowing me to publish our joint work.

I also thank the academic journals—CESIfo, the Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, Review of Financial Stability, European Economic Review, the Journal of the European Economic Association, the Journal of Financial Intermediation, and the Economic Review of the Federal Reserve of New York—for giving me the right to use my articles for this monograph. Chapter 1 was originally published in CESIfo Economic Studies (2003) 49(2):141–56; chapter 2 in Journal of the European Economic Association (2004) 6:1116–47; chapter 3 in Journal o f the European Economic Association (2004) 6:1085–115; chapter 4 in Journal of Financial Stability (2004) 1:93–110; chapter 5 in Journal of Money, Credit and Banking (1996) 28(Part 2):733–62; chapter 6 in Journal of Money, Credit
