Money and Debt : Empirical Studies in Northern Europe 1840-2015

Kenny, Sean LU (2016)
Abstract
This dissertation firstly produces new financial series on money and bank
assets which are consistent with current definitions for the UK for the crisis
rich period 1840-80 and new monetary aggregates for Ireland from pre
famine to independence (1840-1921). By employing the new data, cyclical
and seasonal analysis are conducted to shed light on the business cycles
and financial crises of the period. Secondly, the dissertation explores the
evolution of public debt in Ireland (1950-2015) by constructing a consistently
defined fiscal series, analysing the debt ratio dynamics and reductions of the
past and offering policy lessons for the present. The thesis finally contributes
to the post crisis financial... (More)

past and offering policy lessons for the present. The thesis finally contributes
to the post crisis financial regulation debate by testing the use of private
sector debt in macroprudential regulation (as outlined in Basel III) through
conducting a regional analysis (Finland, Ireland, Sweden and the UK)
covering the period 1986-2013. (Less)
