Seventh Edition - Finlawmetrics 2012
21-22, June, Bocconi University, Italy
The Tailor Rule at the Crossroads: Monetary Policy, Prudential Issues and Central Banking
AIM: After six editions, Finlawmetrics has established itself as a unique forum for scientific and policy analyses and discussions of the most relevant issues related to the evolution of thinking, judgment, and practice in the fields of monetary policy and financial regulation and supervision.
The initiative is scientifically promoted by three leading research centres: The Paolo Baffi Centre on Central Banking and Financial Regulation (Bocconi University), the European Banking Center (Tilburg University) and the Center on Central Banks and Financial Institutions (New York University).
The crisis started in 2007 has raised important questions about the design of monetary policy, which was well established on three intertwined pillars: Taylor Rule (strategy), interest rate policy (tactics) and central bank independence (setting). How the increasing role of prudential issues can change the three pillars? The 2012 edition wishes to address the key issues that are emerging for the design of post-crisis policies and institutions.
The Steering Committee welcomes theoretical and empirical papers that shed light on the shape of the Taylor Rule before and after the crisis, on the different causes of change in, and their consequences, both in the developed and emerging countries.
STEERING COMMITTEE: Coordinators: Donato Masciandaro (Bocconi University), Sylvester Eijffinger (Tilburg University and CEPR), Geoffrey Miller (New York University), Steven Ongena (Tilburg University), Marc Quintyn (IMF Institute, International Monetary Fund), Tommaso Monacelli (Bocconi University)
