    Proper policy implementation is essential to reaping the full benefits of the global regulatory reforms.

    Speaker: Jaime Caruana (General Manager)
    Date: 25 June 2017
    Focusing on the 87th BIS Annual Report's key messages, in his speech Jaime Caruana notes that global growth has broadened and strengthened, and the near-term outlook is better than it's been in a long while. He argues that taking advantage of these tailwinds to build greater economic resilience, nationally and globally, will leave us better prepared for future adverse events. Completing Basel III is a priority.
  • How much do we really know about inflation?
    Event: BIS Annual General Meeting 2017
    Speaker: Claudio Borio (Head of the Monetary and Economic Department)
    Date: 25 June 2017
    Could an inflation flare-up end the current expansion? How much do we really know about the inflation process? In his presentation, Claudio Borio draws on research presented in the 87th BIS Annual Report and concludes that we may be underestimating globalisation's influence on inflation. If so, a flare-up may not be that likely. If the hypothess is correct, it also points to refinements in current monetary policy strategies.
  • Globalisation: real and financial
    Event: BIS Annual General Meeting 2017
    Speaker: Hyun Song Shin (Economic Adviser and Head of Research)
    Date: 25 June 2017
    In his presentation, Hyun Song Shin highlights key messages from the 87th BIS Annual Report. He argues that trade and financial openness go together, and that globalisation of the real economy entails substantial financial globalisation. The complex trading relationships involved in global value chains require greater financial resources. If left unchecked, the build-up of financial excesses can result in costly financial crises. Ensuring a resilient financial system is the best way to reap the benefits of real globalisation. 
  • The global financial system, the real rate of interest and a long history of boom-bust cycles
    Event: Andrew Crockett Memorial Lecture, BIS Annual General Meeting 2017
    Speaker: Hélène Rey (Lord Bagri Professor of Economics, O.B.E. London Business School)
    Date: 25 June 2017
    Financial cycles strongly determine real short-term interest rates. Wealth increases rapidly during financial booms, faster than consumption itself. As a consequence, the consumption to wealth ratio declines, as happened in the "Roaring 20s" and the "Exuberant 2000s". In the subsequent busts, savings increase and keep real interest rates low. The related global financial cycle constrains monetary poilcy independence, even for countries with flexible exchange rates, transforming the Mundellian trilemma into a dilemmma. Tackling these issues calls for combinations of monetary and fiscal policy coordination, macroprudential policies, and possibly capital controls. It also means considering the role of the US as a provider of safe assets, and asking whether a multipolar system would be advantageous.

    Event: Cato Institute 33rd Annual Monetary Conference: luncheon address
    Speaker: Claudio Borio (Head of the Monetary and Economic Department)
    Date: 12 November 2015
    Claudio Borio questions three beliefs that underpin current monetary policy received wisdom. He concludes that the trend decline in real interest rates is, at least in part, a disequilibrium phenomenon, not consistent with lasting financial, macroeconomic and monetary stability; and that there is a need to adjust current monetary policy frameworks so that monetary policy plays a more active role in preventing systemic financial instability and its huge macroeconomic costs.

    Speaker: Markus Brunnermeier (Alexandre Lamfalussy Fellow for 2016)
    Date: 5 September 2016
    Presentation on the book by Markus Brunnermeier, Harold James and Jean-Pierre Landau. The design flaws in the euro reflect fundamental differences in its founders' economic thinking. For historical reasons, Germans favour rules, discipline and austerity as an antidote to excessive debt. The French prefer flexibility and discretion, and would opt for stimulus along Keynesian lines. These differences in approach are likely to continue hindering a unified response to the euro area's problems.
