Economic Policies For Financial Stability

This two-week course offered by the IMF Institute, occasionally in collaboration with other international and regional organizations, examines macroeconomic and micro-prudential policies to safeguard financial stability. It explores lessons from recent crises by discussing the macroeconomic causes, consequences, and policy responses to stress in financial markets and banking systems. Particular attention is paid to the interaction of macroeconomic, financial, supervisory and regulatory frameworks and policies that underpin financial stability. Early warning systems and techniques for assessing financial stability are also addressed. Participants may be asked to make short presentations on topics of interest in their countries.
