Abstract

© 2019 Elsevier Inc. The accountability of bank supervisors to the executive and the legislative branches of the government varies across countries and over time. Using cross-country panel data, we explore whether a banking crisis can affect these accountability arrangements. According to our results, supervisory accountability to the executive branch only becomes more likely following a banking crisis. Our contribution is to the nascent but important literature on the governance of bank supervisors.
