Capital Shortfalls in SSM Banks: How Much Progress Has Been Made?

05-10-2015

The 2014 Comprehensive Assessment by the ECB identified and made public capital shortfalls at 25 major European banks. The banks concerned were required to submit a capital plan to the ECB and the national Competent detailing how the capital shortfall would be filled. Capital plans were to be implemented within six resp. nine months after 26 October 2014. Now that this time has passed, we examine the progress made by the banks required to take action. We also evaluate how far the Comprehensive Assessment ...

Capital Shortfalls in SSM Banks: How Much Progress Has Been Made?

04-10-2015

On 26 October 2014, the European Central Bank (ECB) published the results of the comprehensive assessment that comprised both an asset quality review (AQR) as well as a stress test. Banks that have shown capital shortfalls after the assessment had up to 9 months the close the capital gap. In this paper, we investigate whether actions taken by banks have resulted in noticeable reactions in capital markets. Evidence suggests that banks with shortfalls made some progress during the months after the ...

On 26 October 2014, the European Central Bank (ECB) published the results of the comprehensive assessment that comprised both an asset quality review (AQR) as well as a stress test. Banks that have shown capital shortfalls after the assessment had up to 9 months the close the capital gap. In this paper, we investigate whether actions taken by banks have resulted in noticeable reactions in capital markets. Evidence suggests that banks with shortfalls made some progress during the months after the comprehensive assessment. However, banks that passed might actually be riskier than expected based on the official results from the ECB. Quantitative Easing (QE) by the ECB makes it difficult to interpret market prices due to inflation in asset prices and decrease in risk premia.

Exceptional measures: The Shanghai stock market crash and the future of the Chinese economy

31-08-2015

This summer has been a dramatic one for China's stocks markets, with most indices registering losses of more than 40 % from their annual high. European markets have also suffered, and many observers across the globe are now nervously focused on the Asian giant whose economy drove so many other countries' in recent years. Yet the real economic significance of the drama in China may not stem from its bourses' losses; those who lost money on China's stock market are only a small percentage of its citizens ...

This summer has been a dramatic one for China's stocks markets, with most indices registering losses of more than 40 % from their annual high. European markets have also suffered, and many observers across the globe are now nervously focused on the Asian giant whose economy drove so many other countries' in recent years. Yet the real economic significance of the drama in China may not stem from its bourses' losses; those who lost money on China's stock market are only a small percentage of its citizens, and many are simply shaving their precipitous profits, rather than facing calamitous losses. A more significant economic outcome may result from the Chinese government's efforts to intervene in its stocks markets. The measures adopted by Beijing since the sell-off began – in some cases, measures that were quickly abandoned – would be unthinkable in a fully market economy. Many measures largely contradict the government's commitments to open and transparent financial exchanges. As the liquidity that a slowing Chinese economy badly requires is frozen, it could be Beijing's heavy-handed involvement in local markets – and not their pared prices – that determines the economic fallout from the summer losses.

Le coût de la non-Europe d'une union économique et monétaire incomplète

12-12-2014

L’objectif de cette étude est d’évaluer la robustesse d’une union économique et monétaire forte face à un nouveau scénario de crise. Nous avons conçu un modèle statistique empirique qui intègre dans une perspective comportementale la relation entre les caractéristiques des marchés financiers, les indicateurs macroéconomiques et les données comptables des institutions financières dans les vingt-huit pays de l’Union européenne. En simulant les paramètres du modèle sous l’hypothèse d’une nouvelle crise ...

L’objectif de cette étude est d’évaluer la robustesse d’une union économique et monétaire forte face à un nouveau scénario de crise. Nous avons conçu un modèle statistique empirique qui intègre dans une perspective comportementale la relation entre les caractéristiques des marchés financiers, les indicateurs macroéconomiques et les données comptables des institutions financières dans les vingt-huit pays de l’Union européenne. En simulant les paramètres du modèle sous l’hypothèse d’une nouvelle crise, nous mettons en exergue le rôle crucial d’un fonctionnement efficient et intégré de l’Union européenne afin de limiter les pertes générées au cours d’une crise économique et financière majeure. Dans la perspective d’une nouvelle crise souveraine, une meilleure coordination budgétaire entre les pays de l’UE devrait générer une économie d’environ 85 milliards d’euros, soit 0,65 % du PIB de l’Union européenne. En vertu du même scénario, une union bancaire fonctionnelle permettrait d’économiser 222,3 milliards d’euros, principalement engendrés par un besoin diminué de recapitaliser les institutions financières de l’UE.

The Situation of the Media Sector in Croatia

19-02-2010

In the twenty years since independence the development of free media in Croatia, alongside the birth of democracy and introduction of the market economy, has been a huge challenge. During the 1990s state censorship of the media continued to prevail. Since then the state of media freedoms has improved, but serious problems remain. This paper reviews the present state of affairs in the following four areas: (i) legal framework of the media, (ii) their ownership and financial situation, (iii) the freedom ...

In the twenty years since independence the development of free media in Croatia, alongside the birth of democracy and introduction of the market economy, has been a huge challenge. During the 1990s state censorship of the media continued to prevail. Since then the state of media freedoms has improved, but serious problems remain. This paper reviews the present state of affairs in the following four areas: (i) legal framework of the media, (ii) their ownership and financial situation, (iii) the freedom of the media and (iv) the role of the media in the fight against organized crime and corruption. While further amendments of media legislation are required to meet EU standards, the media are already showing themselves to be potent forces in the struggle against the wider problem of state corruption and its defective judiciary. The EU accession process is a unique opportunity to achieve decisive progress in these respects.
