LSE European Institute Towards a Genuine Economic and Monetary Union panel discussion
Date: Wednesday 16 October 2013
Venue: Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speakers: Ignazio Angeloni, Charles Goodhart, Hélène Rey
After two decades that have seen an outsourcing of prudential financial supervision to independent agencies, there is now a distinct movement to reassign greater supervisory powers to central banks as supervisors. The Bank of England and the European Central Bank are each a case in point. How will the multiplicity of objectives be handled when price stability calls for restrained monetary policy while financial stability would be helped by a less restrictive monetary stance? How can crisis management work when a liquidity crunch leaves parts of the banking system insolvent, calling for a fiscal backstop for the supervisor? And can macroprudential instruments succeed in less than fully rational financial markets? This panel discussion is part of the series Towards a Genuine Economic and Monetary Union - what can the UK and the EU learn from each other?, which is organised in partnership with the European Commission Representation in the UK.
Ignazio Angeloni is advisor to the European Central Bank Executive Board on European financial integration, financial stability and monetary policy, and a visiting fellow at Bruegel, the European think tank on international economics.
Charles Goodhart was the Norman Sosnow Professor of Banking and Finance at the London School of Economics until 2002 and director of the Financial Regulation Research Programme; he is now an emeritus professor of the LSE Financial Markets Group.
Hélène Rey is professor of economics at London Business School and research fellow at the Center for Economic and Policy Research and the National Bureau of Economic Research; previously she was professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University. She has won several prestigious prizes for her research which focuses on capital movements, exchange rates and the international monetary system.
