Part III deals with Bank Performance. A number of issues are assessed including efficiency, financial innovation and technological change, globalizationand ability to deliver small business, consumer, and mortgage lending services.

Part IV of the book provides an overview of Macroeconomic Perspectives in Banking.

This part includes a discussion of the determinants of bank failures and crises, and the impact on financial stability, institutionaldevelopment, and economic growth.

Part V examines International Differences in Banking Structures and Environments.

This part of the handbook examines banking systems in the United States, Western Europe, Transition countries, Latin America, Japan and the developing nations of Asia.
