RESENDE, Marcos Lima Marcelo. Banking and regional inequality in Brazil: an empirical note. Rev. Econ. Polit. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.4, pp.669-677. ISSN 1809-4538.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0101-31572008000400008.

The paper investigates a neglected aspect of regional inequality in Brazil, namely regional inequalities related to financial flows. A synthetic regional financial inequality index is proposed and calculated in a semester basis over the 02-1994/02-2000 period. The inequality measure attempts to capture to what extent deposits in a given state translate into credit operations in that locality. Two main results emerge. First, non-negligible inequality patterns emerge when one considers the segment of private banks and those are consistent with an important proportion of states with a predominantly exporting pattern, for which deposits surpasses loans in that locality. Second, if one focus on the segment of public banks, an opposite pattern appears, that is consistent with decision patterns that might have, in part, a regional development motivation.

Palavras-chave : banking; regional inequality.
