(p.81) 8 Shadow Banking as a Source of Systemic Risk
Progress and Confusion

Robert E. Rubin

The MIT Press

The chapter argues that market-based financial systems will experience episodes of booms and bust, even if regulation can reduce their likelihood and severity. It sees significant risk in the shadow banking world, which has grown rapidly in recent years and yet is still not well understood. The chapter calls for greater efforts toward cataloguing the asset classes, organizations and activities involved in shadow banking, and toward developing the right set of regulatory tools.

Keywords:   systemic risk, shadow banking, macro prudential regulation
