This paper explores some of the potential determinants of efficiency and contestability in the banking systems of major emerging countries, using a sample of 24 countries over the period 2004 -2013. Efficiency is estimated using both stochastic frontier and data envelopment analyses. Market contestability is measured with the Panzar-Rosse H-statistic. Potential drivers of efficiency and market contestability are then discussed.

Dynare is a rich software to solve, estimate and analyse rational expectation models. While it was originally designed to solve and estimate DSGE models, Dynare has also recently been used to solve and simulate heterogeneous agents models (see Winberry and Ragot for two very different approaches). Below is a simple example on how to solve and simulate a simple RBC model using Dynare. A simple model The economy is composed of a representative agent who maximizes his expected discounted sum of utility by choosing consumption $C_t$ and labor $L_t$ for $t=1,…,\infty$ $$ \sum_{t=1}^{+\infty}\big(\frac{1}{1+\rho}\big)^{t-1} E_t\Big[log(C_t)-\frac{L_t^{1+\gamma}}{1+\gamma}\Big] $$
