Many Countries are Becoming Increasingly State-Dependent (1999-2011)
A number of countries reported large increases in state ownership, as seen in World Bank surveys of bank regulation and supervision. The most striking example is United Kingdom, where the share increased from 0 to 26 percent, due to Royal Bank of Scotland bailout in 2008.
Note: I and IV refer to the World Bank's Bank Regulation and Supervision Survey I (1999) and Survey IV (2011). IV-I refers to an increase in the value of the index from 1999-2011.
