Abstract

The performance and behavior of financial institutions have systemic results. They play a central role in the monetary and credit systems, and may end up causing systemic problems. Which lead to the presence and acceptance of a regulatory apparatus. This apparatus has been strongly based on the search for stability, through what has been known as prudential regulation. However, such an apparatus, mainly, but not only from the 1980s, with the adoption of the Basel Accords, seems to start from the premise that, once safe, with a capacity to react in adverse situations, micro or even macroprudential conception, financial / banking institutions would occupy their systemic role, beyond stability. Systemic role understood here in addition to what concerns stability, but also as regards the contribution to the functioning and development of the economies in which they are inserted. The perception of the fragility of such a premise is the research problem proposed by the present project. Thus, based on the idea that regulation plays a fundamental role in the shaping of the financial structure, and thus on how financial systems work and that their systemic role is fulfilled, the research proposed here aims to advance the understanding of banking regulation, understood as broader than prudential regulation in two spheres: conceptual, based on the contribution of Keynesian tradition and the school of regulation, and empirical, with the analysis of the regulatory systems in force in Brazil and China.
