Thinking of a deposit insurance system- delay it!

A World Bank working paper surveying deposit insurance schemes;

Deposit insurance design and implementation: policy lessons from research and practice- This paper illustrates the trends in deposit insurance adoption. It discusses the cross-country differences in design, and synthesizes the policy messages from cross-country empirical work as well as individual country experiences. The paper develops practical lessons from this work and distills the evidence into a set of principles of good design. Cross-country empirical research and individual-country experience confirm that, for at least the time being, officials in many countries would do well to delay the installation of a deposit insurance system.
