This note makes observations on the behaviour of individual commercial banks in Barbados in the decade from 1986-1995, especially in the patterns of interest rate setting by commercial banks, which show how the banking system responds to changes in economic circumstances. The propositions put forward may serve to guide researchers seeking to quantify bank responses to a variety of economic stimuli such as cash shortages, high public sector borrowing requirements etc. and may also be helpful to policy makers.
