How Should Multinational Resolution Authority Work?
Posted by David Zaring

One of the many disasters of the financial crisis involved the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, which was marked by a race to the courthouse doors by creditors in most places Lehman had a substantial number of assets.  It also, given the number of subsidiaries Lehman had created, was very complicated to discern even which assets were domiciled where.  

Anyway, the consensus has been that a cross border resolution regime for big banks is needed, in light of the Lehman problems.  But very little progress on this high priority of the G20's has been made.  All of which brings us to the latest speech by a German banker urging that a cross-border deal be arranged.  Does that mean a treaty?  Evidently not.  The German central bank thinks that agencies like the FDIC should come up with a cross-border resolution authority protocol, and that that should do it.
