Global imbalances, in particular the polarisation of current account deficits and surpluses, have increased during the 2000s, until the outbreak of the financial crisis. As underlined by G20 heads of States and Government: “inconsistent and insufficiently coordinated macroeconomic policies, inadequate structural reforms […] led to unsustainable global macroeconomic outcomes.” (summit on financial markets and the world economy, Washington, November 15, 2008). This leads to today’s key question of regulation in the face of global imbalances.
This international symposium, organised by the Banque de France, will bring together a wide group of central bank governors, leading academics from all over the world as well as senior officials of major financial institutions and international organisations. The participants will debate themes that are relevant to the G20 French presidency, such as the reform of the regulation of the international monetary and financial system or the progress in the coordination of economic and financial policies.
Symposium by invitation only
