Credit Gaps and the Cheapening of Credit April 9, 2014 — As we move into the sixth year of recovery in mature market economies, supported mainly by extraordinary monetary accommodation, it is important to ask where we are in the credit cycle. Or more precisely, where is the credit gap? This can help us gauge the potential duration of the economic expansion as well as possible implications for financial stability given plentiful liquidity. In a related development, plentiful liquidity may have contributed to a “cheapening” of credit—the implications of which are yet to be fully understood. Increasing issuance by lower quality borrowers has added to “fallen angels” to cause a noticeable deterioration of credit quality—as measured by credit ratings—of outstanding sovereign and corporate debt over the past decade.

European Banks Need Bigger Greek-Bond Writedowns, IASB Says Some European banks haven’t sufficiently written down the value of Greek government bonds and other “distressed sovereign debt” they own, the organization that sets accounting rules in the region said. Banks and other financial institutions are valuing the bond holdings in a way that, in some cases, reflects internal models instead of market prices, the International Accounting Standards Board said in a letter published on its website today. “It is hard to imagine that there are buyers willing to buy these bonds at the prices indicated,” the IASB said in the letter, dated Aug. 4 and sent to the European Securities and Markets Authority. “This is a matter of great concern to us.” Governments and banks in the 27-nation European Union are negotiating the details of a second international rescue for Greece.
