  • Second Conference on The Structure of Banking Systems and Financial Stability

    September 19 – 20, 2013
    Max Planck Institute Bonn, Germany

    Program

    The recent financial crisis has shown the relevance of the structure of banking systems for their resilience against financial crises. Beyond the well-known relations­hip between banking competition and stability, many other structural features of banking systems, such as bank business models, interconnection with the government, network structures, cross-border activities, and the relations­hip between banks and financial markets have proven to be important determinants of financial stability.

    This conference, which is jointly organized by the DFG Special Priority Program (SPP 1578) “Financial Market Imperfections and Macroeconomic Performance” and the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods, aims at discussing the relations­hip between market structure of banking systems and financial stability from a theoretical and empirical perspective, including possible policy responses. Keynote speeches will be given by Martin Hellwig and Jean-Charles Rochet.
