Banking on Democracy

Javier Santiso

The MIT Press

The interactions between democratic transitions and financial markets are highlighted in this chapter, with a focus on whether bankers involved in corporate and sovereign lending operations prefer to lend to new emerging democracies. Additionally have private bankers been willing to increase their lending operations to newly emerging democracies? In other words, is there a democratic premium? Cross border lending from international bankers is explored as well as the questions of whether they react positively by increasing their lending when an emerging democracy appears, and whether bank lending increases after democratic transitions and consolidation.

Keywords:   bankers, emerging democracies, cross border lending, sovereign lending, corporate lending, democratic premium
