Abstract

Using an instrument-based definition of shadow banking, we investigate the size and evolution over time of the shadow banking system. We investigate data on Asset Backed Commercial Paper and Securitized Real Estate Loan with an original approach. By means of several advanced and refined econometric tests, we explore time series data and find a non-stationary trend. This provides support for the need to regulate shadow banking. Further policy implications are discussed in detail.
