Focusing primarily on the banking system in the United States, this book offers an innovative framework that integrates a depository bank's liquidity and its capital adequacy into a unified notion of funding that helps to explain how the 2007-2008 crisis unfolded, why central banks succeeded in resolving the crisis, and how the conceptual legacy of the crisis and its resolution led to lasting changes in bank funding regulation, including new objective requirements for bank liquidity.

To provide a comparative context, the book also examines the funding models of nonbank intermediaries like dealer banks and insurers.This book provides a nuanced understanding of bank funding practices for legal academics interested in banking regulation or corporate finance and helps place prudential regulation and the private law of funding in the context of the banking business model. Business model scholars, financial academics, and bank regulators will appreciate its readable, integrated approach to understanding some of the most current and conceptually challenging aspects of prudential regulation.
