Abstract

We focus on a modified version of the markup test to investigate the impact of entry regulation on competitive conditions in the Iranian banking industry for the period 1996-2006. The

bank competition, we set up a simultaneous equation model for unbalanced panel data by utilizing the stepwise maximum likelihood method. We find that concomitantly with the new

bank entries a pro-competitive change in the banking industry took place.
