  • Banking Competition and Capital Ratiosby Martin Cihák; Klaus Schaeck

    International Monetary Fund 2007; US$ 9.00

    We use data for more than 2,600 European banks to test whether increased competition causes banks to hold higher capital ratios. Employing panel data techniques, and distinguishing between the competitive conduct of small and large banks, we show that banks tend to hold higher capital ratios when operating in a more competitive environment. This result... more...

    International Monetary Fund 2007; US$ 9.00

    The paper provides an empirical analysis of aggregate banking system ratios during systemic banking crises. Drawing upon a wide cross-country dataset, we utilize parametric and nonparametric tests to assess the power of these ratios to discriminate between sound and unsound banking systems. We also estimate a duration model to investigate whether the... more...

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 13.72

    Dieses Buch behandelt zentrale Ideen und Konzepte aus den verschiedensten Bereichen der Physik, die in üblichen Darstellungen oft tief unter technischen Details begraben liegen.

  • EU Labor Markets After Post-Enlargement Migrationby Martin Kahanec; Klaus F. Zimmermann

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 152.41

    This book argues that immigrants from new EU member states are not a threat to the Western welfare state. It makes a convincing case that there is no evidence the post-enlargement labor migrants would on aggregate displace native workers or lower wages. more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 102.00

    Europeanization is a term at the centre of contemporary political debate.

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 119.75

    This volume extends and deepens our knowledge about cross-border mobility and its role in an enlarged EU. More specifically, its main purpose is to enlighten the growing and yet rather uninformed debate about the role of post-enlargement migration for economic adjustment in the crisis-stricken labor markets of the Eurozone and the EU as a whole. The... more...
