Models of financial markets and economic policies to deal with recurring financial crises have come under much greater scrutiny since the events of 2007 erupted into a global financial crisis. Models that are capable of identifying when and how financial markets react to shocks, the influence of policies that seem to impede price discovery in these markets, the sensitivity of financial markets to global influences and international attempts to regulate and supervise them, including transparency, governance, and the communication of policy initiatives, are now at the forefront. We are also keenly interested in papers that deal with the role of China in all of the foregoing developments. The conference seeks to bring together academics and policy makers to discuss and debate the latest findings and critical issues up for debate. A panel session consisting of international experts will consider the policy implications arising from the events of the last few years and the extent to which economic research can inform policy makers about the way ahead.
