Schumpeter, Minsky, and the FCA: Exploring the links between financial regulation, growth, and stability


June 9th 2017 to June 10th 2017
Time: Day 1: 12.00-18.30 / Day 2: 9.00-17.00
Venue: Room 9.04, Tower 2, LSE (map)
Organisers: Kevin James (FCA, SRC, FMG, LSE) and Jon Danielsson (SRC, LSE)

The effectiveness of a country’s financial markets profoundly affects its overall economic performance, and the quality of a country’s financial regulatory regime in turn significantly influences market effectiveness (for better or worse). It follows that financial regulation offers a channel through which regulators can (at least in theory) improve both growth and financial stability. In this conference we will explore how we can exploit this MacroConduct channel. 

We focus on:
• Corporate governance, regulation, and economic performance
• The Minsky hypothesis
• Asset management and financial stability

Ross Levine (UC Berkeley) will deliver the keynote address on "Regulating for Prosperity". Other confirmed speakers include Colin Mayer (Oxford), Youfei Xiao (Duke), and Kevin James (FCA/LSE) on corporate governance, Jon Danielsson (LSE) and Dimitri Tsomocos (Oxford) on the Minsky hypothesis, Yuliya Baranova (Bank of England), Luis Brandao (IMF) and Robert Taylor (FCA) on asset management and financial stability, Cindy Alexander (SEC) on the value of securities regulation, and Peter Rousseau (Vanderbilt) on a key 19th century episode of regulating for prosperity.
