|Description:||Workshop "Financial Markets and Financial Regulation: Sources of Instability of Growth? International Historical Perspectives"|
|Subject:||Even before the financial crisis of 2007-2009 research into the causes and consequences of financial crises was a popular field. Nevertheless, there has been far less effort devoted to exploring the connection, from an historical perspective, between financial systems and their influence on economic development and growth, and financial as well as macroeconomic stability. For the purposes of this workshop we are only interested in analyses that deal with the period before Word War II. The workshop is intended as a pre-conference meeting ahead of the 9-13 July 2012 Conference of the International Economic History Association. Topics: - the transmission of macroeconomic and financial shocks across countries or regions; - the state of cooperation in financial and banking markets and the responses and actions of policy makers; - asset price behavior before, during, and following financial crises; - the political economy of finance and banking in centuries past: case studies and analyses; [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
