2021 Financial Stability Conference: Planning for Surprises, Learning from Crises
Organized by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Office of Financial Research
The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and the Office of Financial Research invite the submission of research and policy-oriented papers for the 2021 Financial Stability Conference to be held virtually, November 17–19, 2021.
The disruptions associated with the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, coming just more than a decade after the Great Financial Crisis of 2007–2009, awakened the public and policymakers alike to the dangers of shocks from within and outside of the financial system. These disruptions provided a live-fire stress test for reforms adopted following the Great Financial Crisis, ushering in a new set of responses whose long-term impacts remains to be determined. It drew attention to vulnerabilities in the financial system. Some were foreseen, while other emerged unexpectedly. This year seems an opportune time to not only reflect on the efficacy of these and other past actions, but also to seek reforms to confront the challenges of a new normal, for which once-in-a-lifetime disruptions may come every decade.
Agenda and registration will be posted once it becomes available.
