Barth, J. R. (n.d.). The Regulation and Supervision of Banks Around the World. Retrieved from


Notwithstanding all the accomplishments in the fields of finance and financial economics in the last two decades, if a survey were taken of all the international consultants on appropriate bank regulation and supervision for developing countries, what would be the best way to predict the advice they would offer? Anecdotal evidence accumulated over the years suggests that an astonishingly high degree of accuracy could be obtained merely by knowing each consultant?s country of origin: experts almost always view their own regulatory and supervisory framework as an appropriate model for developing countries. Beyond some inevitable ?home bias,? what would explain such a good fit? The answer is that until now there was no systematically assembled database on the way in which countries regulate and supervise their banking systems, and thus no comprehensive analysis of which regulation and supervisory practices are most appropriate. This ignorance of the facts provides fertile ground for reform recommendations based instead on bias.
