Abstract:
This thesis examines issues of ifinancial intermediation in Uganda and Nigeria, banking stability across OECD countries and the monetary transmission mechanism in Thailand. A panel model is constructed to investigate the determinants of Ugandan bank interest rate margins and spreads especially which bank-specific, banking industry-specific and macroeconomic factors are responsible for the persistently high margins-and spreads in Uganda in the past years. Overall our findings point towards the strong role of bank-specific characteristics and structural impediments in explaining margins and spreads. We do not find a robust and economically significant relationship between privatization. foreign bank entry, market structure and banking efficiency.
