Many of the economically-richest implications of adverse selection have been drawn in credit markets. High interest rates charged to borrowers may induce adverse selection on default probability, leading banks to engage in credit rationing in high-interest environments (Joseph . Akerlof () shows how asymmetric information can create adverse selection and undermine market efficiency. Economic and legal institutions, such as auditors, underwriters, accountants, or used-car dealers, often emerge to limit adverse selection and allow markets to function. As a result, direct government interventions are usually unnecessary. competition leads to higher prices for overdraft credit and bounced check transactions at traditional depositories. In addition, we find that banks and credit unions are less likely to offer free checking accounts when payday loans are available. We hypothesize that customer sorting and adverse selection are responsible for these effects. Most government credit programs explicitly attempt to fund investors that cannot obtain private financing. In the model presented here, these subsidies increase the extent of rationing and reduce efficiency. In contrast, policies that subsidize the nonrationed borrowers, or all borrowers, are efficiency enhancing, and reduce the extent of Cited by:

So, that is a problem. That clearly is an inefficient behavior of capital markets, but this is not only eight. Unfortunately, we will see that adverse selection as a result of forcing face value to grow brings back our old good friend more hazard.

This paper analyzes the effects of government intervention in credit markets when lenders use collateral, interest, and the probability of granting a loan as potential screening devices. Equilibria with and without rationing are examined. The principal theme is that credit policies operate through their effect on the incentive compatibility constraint, which inhibits high-risk.
