CEMAP Workshop on Macroprudential Policy and Financial Stability
Asset Pricing Workshop
After 2008 financial crisis, macroprudential policy and financial stability issues became one of the most important research topics among academic and policymaker alike. As any other policy, macroprudential regulations have their costs and benefits. On the one hand, they aim to improve financial stability and reduce the probability and the costs of future financial crises. On the other hand, they may reduce the supply of credit and lead to fall in investment and economic contraction. Some macroprudential policies pursue financial stability (i.e. ring fencing, capital requirement) while the others stimulate credit expansion (i.e. QE and funding for lending scheme). It is vital to find the right balance in this crucial trade-off. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together academic and central bank scholars to discuss the contemporary problems of macroprudential policies.
