Abstract

Since the outbreak of the crisis, banks appear at best useless and at worst harmful. The recent standard theory indeed constructed an analysis showing that banks had nothing specific to offer.

This analysis thus makes it possible not only to define the role and functions of banks but also to capture the recent developments in the banking system and the malfunctions they generate.
