Questions about Economic Capital Charge

Thread starter #1
Hi guys, I went over topic of economic capital chapter and got a confusion.
the book says Economic Capital charge for Market risk
also, credit capital charge=capital factor*market value of position.
My confusion is that what's the difference between Basel MRC CRC method and Economic capital charge, i.e. we use IRB or SA to calculate credit capital charge, but in there, they use Capital factor, what is the capital factor here? how do get this factor?
