2014 Financial Markets Conference - April 15-16, 2014

Evergreen Hotel and Conference Center
Stone Mountain, GA

Begins April 15, 8:00 a.m. EST
Adjourns April 16, 1:30 p.m. EST

This 19th annual conference will examine a variety of proposals and actions, stemming from the recent financial crisis, that are intended to promote recovery and reduce the risk of future crises. One carefully considered experiment in moving financial markets is quantitative easing (QE), which has implications for markets both during and after its operation. Another outcome of the crisis is ongoing efforts to improve the information environment to reduce the scope for unpleasant market surprises that lead to future crises. Two other policies seek to limit market practices in the hopes of producing a more stable financial system: new regulations setting minimum liquidity requirements, and various proposals to reduce overall financial market activity and/or the activities of systemically important intermediaries. This conference will examine these and related policy issues in terms of their implications for the efficiency and safety of the financial system.

Some of the speakers confirmed to join the conference are:

  • Edward DeMarco, Federal Housing Finance Agency
  • Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel laureate at Columbia University
  • Jeremy Stein, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
  • Dennis Lockhart, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
