Financial services indices, liquidity and economic activity

FRRC / MMF / BoE event

Event dates: 23 - 24 May 2017

In contemporary economies, liquidity plays a pivotal role in financial markets, the banking sector, and the economy as a whole. Since the 2008-09 financial crisis, it has become increasingly necessary to understand the creation, dissemination, measurement and management of liquidity. This conference seeks and invites proposals to understand and assess the macroeconomic implications of liquidity, the liquidity creation process, and the impacts of liquidity on financial markets and economic activity. 

The keynote speakers will be Oswald Distinguished Professor of Macroeconomics William A Barnett (University of Kansas) and Lawrence Goodman (President, Centre for Financial Stability).

Selected papers will be published in the Journal of Financial Stability.

The conference will be hosted at the Bank of England.

Questions may be addressed to: and (for information regarding the Bank of England).
