In this taster lecture we will look at some of the material covered in the first lesson of the module on Financial Regulation and Supervision, that is part of our Global Central Banking and Financial Regulation MSc. The lecture assesses whether there is evidence that banks are indeed Too Big To Fail (TBTF), and if they are, what are the channels through which moral hazard might work.
In the taster component we will explore recent scholarly literature which creates a testable empirical hypothesis to identify TBTF. We will discuss how this hypothesis can be evaluated. We will then assess what the evidence suggests as to the size of the implicit TBTF subsidy which the largest banks enjoy.
