Legal Explanations on Bank Behavior

(p.567) Legal Explanations on Bank Behavior
Corporate Governance in Context

Hideki Kanda

Oxford University Press

Banks take deposits, lend, and participate in payment systems. Where permitted, they underwrite and sell investment securities. Banks, however, act under constraints. Those constraints come from laws, regulations, and other environments. This means that those constraints affect how banks in a given country behave. This chapter discusses two examples where somewhat unique bank behaviour is found in Japan, and attempts to offer legal explanations. It argues that a deeper and more systematic examination of the interactions between law and bank behaviour would enrich our understanding of bank behaviour and related matters in Japan and other countries.
