Using a suitably modified locational model of banking, this paper examines the influence of institutions, such as deposit contract enforcement, in explaining the share of government owned banks in the banking system. The authors present cross-country evidence suggesting that institutional factors are relatively more important determinants of the share of state banks than political or historical ones. They argue that rather than privatizing or subsidizing state banks governments in developing countries should build institutions that foster the development of private banking.
