Finance: Research, Policy and Anecdotes

Economic Policy Panel in Florence

I am off the 64th Economic Policy panel in Florence with an exciting set of papers.  Among them, this proposal for increasing the supply of liquid assets for the Eurozone’s banking system. What have policy makers and academics learned from the crisis and post-crisis experience for monetary policy conduct and what will be the future roles of central banks?  Very prominent will be the topic of migration, with several papers scheduled for a special issue on the topic in 2017. What is the impact of migration on wage levels in the host country and the overall economy?  How would a more efficient European asylum system look like?  I expect lively discussions and great papers to be published next year!
