Further Details
Abstract This paper investigates the impact of financial liberalization on bank efficiency, using data for a sample of over 4,000 bank-year observations from ten emerging economies for the period 1991-2000. We use Data Envelop Analysis (DEA) to calculate bank efficiency at the individual bank level. Bank efficiency measures are then aggregated at the country level to investigate the relationship between financial liberalization and bank efficiency, using a panel least square fixed-effects model. Overall, we find strong support for the positive impact of financial liberalization programmes on bank efficiency.
