This workshop provides insights into recent debates on bankers’ bonuses, measures to prevent bank runs in the aftermath of Northern Rock, and whether online lenders help or harm consumer welfare. Across three seminars Piotr Danisewicz (Bristol), Michael Koetter (Magdeburg), and Kebin Ma (Warwick) present findings on these pressing issues. Their research informs policymakers on how to design regulation to prevent excessive bank risk taking, and illustrate the societal effects of the rapid growth in digital lending.
