Lecture / Reading / Talk

While government led bank capital infusions in US and other developed markets have been usually contingent on an external shock or crisis episode, India presents a unique setting where significant capital infusions happen regularly to stabilize the weak balance sheets of the public sector banks. “Do such repeated government sponsored bank capital infusions lower the financial risks and improve the financial stability?”, we shed light on the question through micro-level data of Indian banks and rigorous empirical methods .
