Abstract:

It is pointed out that the recent legislation and research on bank markets have not resolved the conflicts over the measurement of competition and convenience. Convenience as used in the report refers to the convenience and needs criterion found in bank merger and holding company statutes. The banking laws assign the regulatory agencies the task of answering unanswerable questions. Economic analysis places some of these questions in perspective. It cannot, however, resolve the problem created by having to make uncertain second-best choices. Author
