Distance(s) and the volatility of international trade(s)

Speaker: Cedric Tille, Graduate Institute Geneva
Location: Joan Robinson Room
DIW Berlin
Room 3.3.002a
Mohrenstraße 58

We test this implication in two steps, relying on a broad range of real ...

Location: Joan Robinson Room
DIW Berlin
Room 3.3.002a
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Time: 12:00-13:15

We argue that two factors—the local fragmentation of Germany’s banking system and the role of local banks in local public finance—can help explain why investment is so low. Local public banks dominate lending to small and medium firms in many regions of Germany. At the ...
