    In this research we build upon a Markov-switching vector autoregression model to study how a shock in the credit default swaps market becomes an important chain in the propagation of shocks through the entire financial system in the euro area. To this end, we use daily data from 22/03/2005 to 21/06/2013 on the euro area banks' and sovereign credit default swap spreads, the EUROSTOXX stock market index and the VSTOXX volatility index. The estimation results obtained using a Gibbs sampler indicate that government interventions in the banking sector spread the credit risk from the banking to public sector. Moreover, we find that higher risk premium that is required by investors for holding government bonds depresses the sovereign bond market, impairs balance sheets of the banking sector, and...

Subscribe to WIRED ►► http://po.st/SubscribeWired Particularly when sovereign bonds constitute almost $70 trillion of securities outstanding worldwide. Country credit ratings have perhaps never been as important as in the past few years, during the financial crisis. The rating is based upon a country's ability to repay its debt, and when one has its rating downgraded the cost of borrowing will go up. Investors worldwide will use these ratings to decide where to put their money. "This is why they are important. And why they can also be a menace. This easily translates into slower economic growth or higher taxes. And if it effects you and me it should be clearly defined for the public good. It should be accessible, transparent to us and at no cost." Wired Money is a one-day summit that explores the future of finance. The event was launched in recognition of the fact that financial services -- from online payments to transferring money -- are broken. And where a problem exists, so entrepreneurs step in to create efficiencies. Wired Money brings together the new breed of startups taking on the incumbents and the bold thinkers rewriting the rules of money -- from digital currencies and online reputation to mobile money and digital wallets.
