Abstract: In this paper we use a novel approach to address issues of endogeneity in estimating a causal effect of leverage on risk taking by banks. Using data on local bank office deposits and local unemployment we construct an instrument to use in a regression of leverage on a measure of risk taking constructed from new issuance of loans. The results (i. ) confirm that due to limited liability banks increase their risk taking after an exogenous increase in leverage, and (ii. ) that an increase in deposit supply has a direct positive effect on risk taking by banks.
