Financial Stability in Times of Epidemics

Dates:
  • Thu 26 Mar 2020 13.00 - 14.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-03-26 13:00 2020-03-26 14:00 Europe/Paris Financial Stability in Times of Epidemics

The coronavirus epidemic will not wipe us out, but it can be anticipated that it will have a major impact on our habits, world trade and the virtual economy. In the end it might make us all wiser, but probably also poorer for a while.

Key questions are whether financial panic will strike, and through which channels systematic risk may impact our economies. Any answer must be placed within an informed view of current circumstances, as the shock is hitting us in a phase of economic stagnation, accompanied by excess savings and inflated asset prices.

Against this background, this online lecture will first introduce a view of our current phase financial stagnation and its potential vulnerabilities, with special attention to bank and shadow bank related risks. Next we will introduce a speculative view on the likely effects of the virus crisis on asset prices, inflation and financial stability.

This lecture will be the first of a series of FBF online events that will discuss the economic and financial impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and will review Europe’s economic policy response to the virus
