Forum for Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies

The Forum for Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies (FMM) aims to be both a platform for discussions about economic theory as well as a forum for economic policy debates. In particular, the forum seeks to promote an exchange between competing theoretical paradigms.

22nd FMM Conference

10 Years after the Crash: What have we learned?

In September 2008 the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers was a landmark in a series of events that triggered the great financial and economic crisis. However, its roots lie much deeper: rising inequality, deregulation of financial markets, private debt and trade imbalances are discussed to play a role. Ten years later, financial markets are again reaching record highs, the world economy grows at a strong pace and major central banks are beginning to tighten their monetary policy stance.
