about this bookdeutsch english The entirety of the developed world has felt the consequences of the global financial crisis which began in 2007. The size of distortions, however, differs significantly among the international banking systems. Due to its resilience and continuous profitability worldwide attention has been drawn to the banking market of Australia. During the course of the crisis its remarkable resistance is illustrated not only by stable profits, strong equity ratios and low default rates on loans. Moreover, Australia is the only OECD economy that did not suffer from a recession. What explains the stability of banking systems - both in general and in the specific Australian example? Against academic habits, Patrick Brämer not only utilises and quantifies the term “banking stability”, but starts off with its precise definition. To answer the core research question the analysis then investigates 5 potential determinants of banking stability: the macroeconomic environment of a banking market, its structure, the systemic importance of major institutions, regulatory standards as well as the business model of banks. The work of Patrick Brämer is motivated by the above-average absorption capacity of the Australian banking sector during the financial crisis. However, the theoretical and empirical investigations are conducted in international comparison to allow conclusions to be drawn about the stability of banking systems in general. The book is aimed at both academics and practitioners in the field of financial stability. Due to the focus on the Australian market the reader is provided with a certainly unusual but always informative perspective within the ongoing debate on banking stability.
