Monetary policy and financial (in)stability

The Banque de France will host a one day conference on “Monetary policy and financial (in)stability”.

While serving distinct objectives, monetary policy and financial stability policy potentially interact in several ways. E.g., periods of low interest rates may encourage risk-taking by financial institutions and prepare future crisis, absent proper regulatory safeguards or macroprudential actions. Conversely, financial instability issues may hamper the normal transmission channels of monetary policy. The six research papers gathered in this conference seek to further our understanding of these and related interactions.

The conference is jointly organized by the Banque de France, Sciences Po and the Systemic Risk Center of the London School of Economics, and also benefits from financial support by the European Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council (Grant number ES/K002309/1).

Organizing committee: Régis Breton (Banque de France), Laurent Clerc (Banque de France), Guillaume Plantin (Sciences Po and SRC), Jean-Pierre Zigrand (SRC, LSE)
