Реформа банковского регулирования в Китае: особенности регулятивного континуума и системные риски
The article is a pilot attempt of comprehensive research of China’s banking regulation and supervision reform in the post-crisis
era. It is found that risks associated with the «too big to fail» banks still cannot be contained that to a certain extent is offset by a wider
array of regulatory aspects, their miniaturization, and more stringent supervisory standards compared with Basel III. On the other side, non-regulated segments of the financial sector pose higher risks. More broadly, regulatory reform in China comes close with fundamental principles of international reform of banking regulation. Based on research findings relevant recommendations are developed for the Russian banking sector.
The monograph deals with the issues of macroprudential policy that is organically linked to the system of international banking regulation. The author looks into interrelationship between macro- and micro-prudential regulatory mechanisms, explores the role of macroprudential regulation in minimization of systemic risks, as well as the extent to which the effectiveness of macroprudential tools and techniques will help ensure stress resilience of the banking sector. The author also delves into the most disputable topics on the tradeoff between macroprudential regulation and monetary policy. Without doubt the monograph is a landmark book that expands the most complex topic of macroprudential policy in the post-crisis recovery, as well as the specifics of macroprudential regulation in the post-crisis banking regulation paradigm shift.

The research has confirmed a statistically significant correlation between CV-Index and net profit of banks.
According to recent empirical studies, the new regulatory proposals concerning capital and liquidity standards as well as monitoring of global systemically important financial institutions may lead in a decline of the annual growth rates of GDP due to increase in lending rates and reduction of lending activities of commercial banks. At the same time, some studies show that the new measures may stimulate stability of financial system and help to reduce the probability of banking crises. This paper reviews the results of empirical studies on potential influence of new Basel III standards on functioning of the banking system, economic growth and financial stability.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
