The second edition of an essential text on the microeconomic foundations of banking surveys the latest research in banking theory, with new material that covers recent developments in the field. Over the last thirty years, a new paradigm in banking theory has overturned economists’ traditional vision of the banking sector.
The asymmetric information model, extremely powerful in many areas of economic theory, has proven useful in banking theory both for explaining the role of banks in the economy and for pointing out structural weaknesses in the banking sector microdconomics may justify government intervention. In the past, banking courses in most doctoral programs in economics, business, or finance focused either on management or monetary issues and their macroeconomic consequences; a microeconomic theory of banking did not exist because the Arrow-Debreu general equilibrium model of complete contingent markets the standard reference at the time was unable to explain the role of banks in the economy.
This text provides students with a guide to the microeconomic theory of banking that has emerged since microeconomixs, examining the main issues and offering the necessary tools for understanding how they have been modeled.

Several chapters have been updated in the second edition to include the latest developments in the literature.
Many papers, theoretical and empirical, are also commented, and a large set of references are provided. Nevertheless, some derivations aren’t crystal clear, and some minor mistakes still remain.
In any case, this is the best textbook on microeconomics of banking in the market. One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. A beautiful exposition of the current state of banking theory. Really interesting to understand these complex systems, i really think that is “the” book recommended. Do you want to understand the Asian Crisis or the crisis in Argentina?
This book is already a classic rlchet modern economics. As such, it is a must read for anyone with a serious interest in economics, as well as in finance, or monetary fragility, for that matter.
It is the first comprehensive, as well as comprehensible, coherent, well organized and well written, presentation of a revolution in our understanding freuxas monetary, banking and financial markets which has developed over the past twenty years.
This book illustrates the “microeconomic theory” behind the functioning of banking institutions.
It is in the format of an academic literature review on this subject. The level is for upper undergrads or grad students. Ideal for use with a “topics in advanced microeconomics” Or “asymmetric information” course. Yet as concise as it might be, the book lacks motivation to the reader. The results can be better put into context.
