Abstract

Review of Industrial Organization 12: 1–8, 1997. 1 c 1997 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Printed in the Netherlands. Research on IO Topics in Banking: An Introduction and Overview STEPHEN A. RHOADES Financial Structure Section, Federal Reserve Board, Washington, DC 20551, U.S.A. I. Introduction When Geoff Shepherd, the General Editor of this Review, asked the Board of Editors for ideas on a special issue, it occurred to me that the banking industry would probably be a good candidate. Of course, it is a very important industry that plays a major role in the savings-investment process and in the transmission of monetary policy. But banking is also a very large industry that includes as customers practically every household and business in the United States, and it is undergoing epic changes, including an unprecedented merger movement that is almost certain to continue for years. These changes and the characteristics of the banking industry make the industry an excellent laboratory for analyzing competition and strategic behavior, among other things. Indeed, during the past decade or so, there has been more IO-related research in banking than many students of IO might expect.
