The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco is sponsoring a conference on Monetary Policy and Financial Markets, to be held in San Francisco on Friday, March 28, 2014. The conference will focus on issues related to financial market expectations of monetary policy, the effects of monetary policy on asset prices, and financial market frictions.
The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s 2013 Asia Economic Policy Conference, “Prospects for Asia and the Global Economy” aims to bring together high-level officials, distinguished economic thinkers from Asia, Europe, and the United States to discuss issues and policy options of common interest and mutual concern.
Participants in this conference presented leading edge economic research on all aspects of expectations formation, including theory, empirical measurement, and laboratory/experimental evidence.
The purpose of the conference is to promote dialogue among monetary policymakers and advisors from the People’s Bank of China and the Federal Reserve System in the United States as well as academic experts on issues involving monetary policy, economic growth, and global financial crises.
In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act into law, and the Federal Reserve System was created. In recognition of the centennial of the Fed’s founding, this conference looks at lessons from the past and expectations for the future for U.S. monetary policy.
The Federal Reserve’s Day Ahead conference provides Federal Reserve economists an annual venue to present their research on financial markets and institutions in conjunction with the annual American Economics Association meeting.
This conference brought together papers on a variety of international topics, including the effectiveness of capital controls, determinants of global current account imbalances, foreign reserve accumulation, and monetary policy in China.
Motivated by global financial events of the recent past, the workshop will showcase the latest research on forecasting rare, but systemic, events as well as monitoring more idiosyncratic risks. Experts from the academic, regulatory, and practitioner communities will come together to discuss the interface between cutting-edge research methods and best-practice risk-management techniques.
Policymakers in both advanced and emerging economies face an array of challenges in the current economic environment. How can monetary policy and macroprudential policy be coordinated to achieve the objectives of price and output stability in an environment vulnerable to disruptions in financial markets? What financial regulatory framework will best reduce the likelihood and costs of future crises? What are the relative merits of regional coordination in Asia in light of the lessons of the recent crisis? What are the prospects for global rebalancing of trade and capital flows, and what role might China play in these developments? The 2011 conference examined these issues.
The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco inaugurated its Asia Economic Policy Conference series with a conference on “Asia and the Global Financial Crisis.” The conference welcomed central bank officials and other experts from around the world to share their views on linkages across the Pacific and the appropriate macroeconomic and regulatory responses to the crisis.
