Balancing the Banks

This chapter focuses on the potential measures that G20 countries can take to deal with the international financial regime. More precisely, as far as the treatment of distressed banks is concerned, the actions of G20 countries should pursue two possible objectives. The first is the harmonization of the treatment of distressed banks across countries in order to level the playing field while also promoting global financial stability; it is useful in this regard to distinguish individual bank distress from systemic distress. The second is the promotion of cooperation between countries in the treatment of cross-border distressed banks. Each of these issues are discussed in turn.
