dc.description.abstractThis paper traces the location of foreign banks in Germany from 1949 to 2006. Assuggested by new economic geography models we find a ?u?-shaped concentration offoreign banks in Germany. Only after a competition between several cities, Frankfurthas emerged as the pre-eminent financial centre, triggered by the ?historical event? ofsetting up the German central bank in Frankfurt. After a strong increase, Frankfurt?sshare in the location of foreign banks in Germany decreases slowly but significantlysince the mid 1980?s. We conclude that there will be a lesser role in Europe for secondtierfinancial centres in the future.en_US
