Conference Banque de France - Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago

"Asset Price Bubbles and Monetary policy"

The Banque de France and Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago are jointly sponsoring a conference entitled "Asset Price Bubbles and Monetary Policy". The aim of the conference is to convene leading economists working on understanding why asset prices can diverge from the underlying fundamental worth of these assets, and how policymakers should respond if and when such events occur. Topics covered during the conference include the role of financial frictions and bubbles, the welfare implications of bubbles and policy interventions, patterns in housing markets, and what data policymakers should follow to detect the possibility of bubbles. The conference will also feature a panel that will discuss whether monetary policy should prevent asset price bubbles with the participation of Charles Evans, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Jean-Pierre Landau (Banque de France), Takatoshi Ito (University of Tokyo) et Jean Tirole (Toulouse School of Economics).

The conference will take place at Cercle Républicain, 5 Avenue de l'Opéra, 75001 PARIS. To attend this conference, please contact us at the following mail address: 1404-bubblemp-ut@banque-france.fr
