BIS: Transmission of monetary policy through global banks: whose policy matters?
This paper examines how monetary policy changes in various countries affect international bank lending. Most of the existing literature looks at monetary conditions in one or two countries, that of the lender or that of the borrower.

Do interest rates in a third country also affect the volume of bank lending between the two countries?
