An Empirical Analysis of the Risk Taking Channel of Monetary Policy in China—Base on Evidence from Chinese Listed Bank
After financial crisis in 2008, more and more researchers paid attention to not only the expansionary monetary policy but also the relationship between the risk-taking and monetary policy. Borio and Zhu firstly researched on risk-taking channel of monetary policy in 2008. This article firstly reviews some literature about the risk-taking channel of monetary policy, the transmission mechanism and the influencing factors, and then selects the data of 15 representative listed Banks in China from 2007-2016 to do empirical research and draw the following conclusions. First, this article finds evidence that the risk-taking channel of monetary policy is significant in China. Expansionary monetary policy has a positive impact on banks’ risk-taking. Second, macro-economic conditions and the micro characteristics of the bank can influence the transmission of risk-taking channel. Based on that, this article proposes the recommendation that monetary policy should be included in macro-prudential system to strengthen monitoring system of the bank’s risk management. Besides the relationship between counter-cyclical capital regulation and monetary policy control is important.
