$55.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)


This paper has documented the empirical evidence that the Basle Accord had significant effects on bank credit in Japan. The Accord reduced the ratio of the credit increase to the total asset by 0.09–0.24% for banks with the international standard, and by 0.06–0.21% for those with the domestic standard, respectively. According to the Fixed Effects Model estimates, the impacts of the regulation are in between 0.12% and 0.13% for those banks with the international standard. These estimates are smaller than the corresponding estimate with aggregate time series data, 0.40%.
