National Bureau of Economic Research: Banking-Crisis Interventions, 1257-2019

National Bureau of Economic Research: Banking-Crisis Interventions, 1257-2019. “We present a new database of banking-crisis interventions since the 13th century. The database includes 1886 interventions in 20 categories across 138 countries, covering interventions during all of the crises identified in the main banking-crisis chronologies, while also cataloguing a large number of interventions outside of those crises. The data show a gradual shift over the past centuries from the traditional interventions of a lender-of-last-resort, suspensions of convertibility, and bank holidays, towards a much more prominent role for capital injections and sweeping guarantees of bank liabilities.” There’s a prominent link to download a PDF of the paper, but you’ll need to scroll down a little further and look for “Associated Links” to download the dataset.
