About the Topic
The Global Financial Crisis has triggered a revolution in the way we think of macroeconomic policies. Volatile financial markets and fragile banking systems seem to have become the norm rather than the exception in a number of countries. High levels of public debt, often going hand-in-hand with high levels of private debt, are a constant worry even in the most dynamic industrialized countries. Low interest rates are predicted to be one of the elements featuring future economic scenarios. The causes, consequences and re-generation of stagnant economies has become a subject of debate at a world level. In this context, how should monetary and fiscal policy be conducted? What is the role of global trade? Are macro-prudential policies useful? Has the setting of macro policies changed since the advent of the crisis?
In this forum, the eminent speakers will discuss these issues drawing on their leadership roles and experience in various government and non-government organisations. Topics discussed will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience, which will be facilitated by the event Chair.
