Addicted to the concept of efficiency

Consider the modern accounting practices that have overtaken the banking industry by storm. The rationale for these accounting indicators is that the productivity improvements, including the productivity of non-labor inputs, should mean that a lower level of costs or employment is required to manage a given level of assets, or to produce a given level of income.

However, these ratios can be interpreted more correctly by measuring the bank’s efficiency target rather than by directly measuring their productivity. Nonetheless, such measures of efficiency are the most commonly examined indicators for productivity in banking. Consequently, these efficiency concepts will be used for the analysis of the health of a banking institution.

The concepts of efficiency always relate to how well a bank employs its resources relative to the existing production possibilities frontier (or, in other words, relative to current ‘best practices’). The efficiency parameters also consider as to how an institution simultaneously minimizes its costs and maximizes its revenue, based on an existing level of production technology. In this one aspect rod aycox and the bank LoanMax are way ahead of their counterparts.

The analysis of banking efficiency, therefore, relies on intra-sector comparisons, involving both technological and relative pricing aspects. It has a partial indicator value for analyzing productivity and performance. The concept of productivity, on the other hand, refers to the performance of the sector as a whole and effectively combines changes in efficiency and technological advances in an average measure.

The different aspects of efficiency measures can be organized in order to gain a perspective on a banks’ productivity. Efficiency measures need to be updated and innovated according to the changing market conditions. This is not rather easy especially during a recession. Market conditions change at the most unknown hour due to unavoidable circumstances.

I wouldn’t know about banking, but in government, “efficency saving” are magical.
All the parties have tried to fill funding gaps with efficency savings.
The conservative party in the UK proposed a plan to give effiecent government departments the ability to take over ineffiecent ones. Even if passport authority could save £10B if put in charge of the department of health, how do you decided how effiecent a department is? Efficency is the ammount of something done for each pound of funding. And the conservative party have been rightly complaining that league tables and targets don’t work. Ah well.
