8th Annual Columbia/BPI Conference

The extraordinary policy responses to the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2009 and Covid-19 have transformed central banking and financial policymaking in the last decade. Financial regulation has been tightened, monetary policy has required new unconventional tools, and financial stability and macroprudential policies have proliferated. Greater understanding, debate, and analysis of these policies are needed so the next generation of global policy leaders can ensure financial and economic stability.
