A Case Study from a Tabletop Exercise
New York Fed, 2016
Macroprudential policy tools to steady markets under financial duress may be critical in the next crisis.
In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the US Federal Reserve has looked at using macroprudential tools – regulatory and rule-based actions, distinct from traditional monetary policy – to mitigate systemic risk in future financial disruptions. In this high-level examination of macroprudential applications, central bankers Tobias Adrian, Patrick de Fontnouvelle, Emily Yang and Andrei Zlate examine how and why the levers would work during a potential risk event. getAbstract recommends their comprehensive, esoteric insider’s report to central bankers, policy makers and financial professionals.
In this summary, you will learn
- How macroprudential tools might assist in mitigating financial crises and
- How effective such tools may be in forestalling or dampening risk impacts.
