Final Program (pdf)

The global financial and economic crisis in 2008/2009 has revealed the critical role played by the financial sector of an economy. In response, many policy makers and academic scholars have focused their attention on the link between banking, monetary policy, and macroeconomic outcome. Against this backdrop, the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), the German Science Foundation (DFG), and the Research Center SAFE (Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe) are organizing a joint conference on “Banking, Monetary Policy, and Macroeconomic Performance”. 

Christian Hellwig (Toulouse School of Economics), Nobuhiro Kiyotaki (Princeton University), Dirk Krueger (University of Pennsylvania), Sydney Ludvigson (New York University), and Gianluca Violante (New York University) have already confirmed their participation.   

Organizers: Wouter den Haan (London School of Economics and CEPR), Jan-Pieter Krahnen (Goethe University Frankfurt and SAFE), Tom Krebs (University of Mannheim), Alexander Ludwig (Goethe University Frankfurt and SAFE)
