TSE - Banque de France CONFERENCE
"Macroeconomics and Liquidity"

The financial crisis has been a sore reminder of the relevance of liquidity. A fruitful dialogue has developed among central bankers and regulators, academic researchers, financial institutions and market participants.

To contribute to the academic and policy research on those topical issues, the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) and Banque de France jointly organise an international conference on the economics of liquidity crises and on the macroeconomic implications of liquidity management.

This conference follows up on the Special Issue on Liquidity of the Banque de France Financial Stability Review released in February. It is also part of a larger and longer term partnership between TSE and Banque de France aiming at developing the economic and financial research in fields relevant for central banks.

Economists and experts coming from university, banking sector and central banks will participate to this conference. Franklin Allen (University of Pennsylvania), Bruno Biais (TSE), Olivier Blanchard (MIT), Patrick Bolton (Columbia), Markus Brunnermeier (Princeton), Emmanuel Farhi (Harvard), Veronica Guerrieri (Chicago), Bengt Holmström (MIT), John Moore (Princeton), Jean-Charles Rochet (TSE), and Hyun Shin (Princeton) will present papers. Discussants will include Christian Ewerhart (University of Zürich), Guido Lorenzoni (MIT), Gilles Saint-Paul (TSE), Jean Tirole (TSE) and Dimitri Vayanos (LSE).

The conference will take place at Palais Brongniard, place de la Bourse, 75002 Paris and at Banque de France (Golden Gallery), rue de Radziwill, 75002 Paris.
