CONFERENCE ON THE INTERCONNECTEDNESS OF FINANCIAL SYSTEMS
March 07-08, 2019
Washington, USA (United States of America)
The crisis of 2007 highlighted the important role of interconnectedness in the functioning of modern financial systems. Policymakers around the globe created reforms that directly or indirectly use different measures of interconnectedness to promote financial stability. All these reforms have prompted an enormous growth of literature. Yet, the economic content of most interconnectedness measures and the role played by the structure of a complex and evolving financial system in shaping systemic risk remain imperfectly understood. This conference will bring together leading academics and policymakers to discuss research that expands our understanding of the interconnectedness of financial systems.
