Title：Regulating Shadow Banks: Financial Innovation versus Systemic Risk
Why do we have shadow banks and what is the optimal shadow bank regulation? I develop a bank run model featuring the tradeoff between financial innovation and systemic risk to investigate the role of shadow banking and the regulation. In my model, the traditional banking sector is regulated such that it can credibly provide safe assets, while a shadow banking sector creates space for beneficial investment opportunities created by financial innovation but also provides regulatory arbitrage opportunities for non-innovative banks. Systemic risk arises from the negative externalities of asset liquidation in the shadow banking sector, which may lead to a self-fulfilling recession and costly government bailouts. Heavy regulatory punishment on systemically important shadow banks controls existing systemic risk and has a deterrent effect on its accumulation ex ante. My paper is the first to formalize the designation authority of a macro-prudential regulator in systemic risk regulation.
