    The Economics of the Debt Markets

    Hi everyone, I'm having some trouble with an assignment containing an economics issue and was hoping you could help. The problem: I'm working on a shadow banking assignment, specifically related to the issue of margin/haircuts in collateralised finance transactions (derivatives, repos, securities lending). I need to write a section on "the economics of the debt markets" that specifically relates to the aforementioned. What I think: I think this relates to various things: 1. The supply and demand for shadow banking services as it undercuts traditional banking 2. Collateral Intermediation i.e. collateral velocity, (re-use/re-hypothecation of collateral). 3. Economic functions: Hedging, financing, price discovery and liquidity Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Mr Kipling
