Competition and Bank Opacity
Abstract:Did regulatoryreforms that lowered barriers to competition increase or decrease the qualityof information that banks disclose to the public? By integrating the gravitymodel of investment with the state-specific process of bank deregulation thatoccurred in the United States from the 1980s through the 1990s, we develop abank-specific, time-varying measure of deregulation-induced competition. Wefind that an intensification of competition reduced abnormal accruals of loanloss provisions and the frequency with which banks restate financialstatements. The results suggest that competition reduces bank opacity,potentially enhancing the ability of markets to monitor banks.
