This special issue of The Journal of Financial Market Infrastructures on collateral provides a collection of papers that are not fully in sync with traditional thinking in policy and academic circles, or are under-researched.
This paper attempts to quantify the “effective” supply of collateral assets in Australia by applying a measure of supply that adjusts outstanding issuance for two important features of the collateral market.
The authors provide theoretical microfoundations to understand the impact of monetary policy on markets characterized by collateral reuse.
The authors model the asymmetry between collateral values to the parties in the collateral chain. The paper highlights that collateral reuse can be socially beneficial if the costs of misallocation are not significant.
