The three essays collected in this PhD thesis contribute to a better understanding of bank regulation and supervision by providing evidence of unintended consequences of the current regulation and supervision framework, some that should be curtailed and some that could be explored to improve financial stability. The first essay examines an unexplored feature of the international capital regulation framework, providing new knowledge about the cyclicality and variability of capital requirements. The second essay studies the effect of capital requirements on credit supply and investigates whether strategic risk modeling explains the effect. The third essay explores the link between several bank regulatory policies and supervision practices, and non-financial firm leverage.
