Aftermath of The Financial Crisis
Since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008, economies of various countries face challenges with economic stagnation or even contraction, unemployment, hefty government debts etc. For companies, difficulties in obtaining bank financings, falling customer demand, low capacity utilization are common. Despite QE implemented by some countries, it is not completely effective in easing bank credit (which will also be elaborated in this Book), cumulating in liquidity problems and impinging adversely upon survival of some companies.
With rising capital requirements under Basel III (the new bank capital standard), coupled with tapering of QE3 in US, inter alia, market liquidity is expected to tighten further going forward. This could make companies’ access to bank loan even more difficult.
Importance of Bank Credit on the Economy
Based on pre- and post-crisis economic data/researches on US, China, EU and UK, it was found bank credit has more crucial and far-reaching influence than just liquidity for companies, and money supply creation. Bank credit can cast pervasive impact on the whole economy, including export, fixed asset investment, and even competitiveness of a country/jurisdiction etc.
Nevertheless, companies can contribute towards saving capital for their lending banks. Using real-life borrowing examples, this Book has provided practical illustrations of how companies can do so.
In this Book, different definitions of money supply in US, China, EU and UK, and the practical aspects of money creation are also highlighted.
