Abstract: This paper aims to investigate the effects of banking channel in destabilisation of the financial system. We make an effort to reconcile certain conflicting findings of prior literature. To this end, we focus on the involvement of management on bank earnings volatility through the quality of bank financial statements. We use data from commercial banks of three countries of Euro-zone that adopted a different approach regarding their growth model. We employ panel data analysis for a period which begins on 2001 and ends on 2014. Our key findings point to that in Greece the banking channel deteriorates the financial conditions through the bad quality of bank financial statements. However, the other countries which share similar banking size with Greece enjoy an entirely different effect by their banking channel. We perform the robustness analysis using the bootstrap standard deviation.
