ERF Conference: Policy Analysis in the Post Great Recession Era

Koç University-TÜSİAD Economic Research Forum (ERF), The Laboratory for Aggregate Economics and Finance (LAEF), and Central European University (CEU) organized a conference titled “Policy Analysis in the Post Great Recession Era” on October 16-17, 2014 at InterContinental İstanbul, Taksim.

The conference focused on policy choices in the aftermath of the Great Recession. It examined the issues both from the perspective of developed and emerging economies. From the viewpoint of developed economies, the conference discussed the implications of forward guidance in monetary policy as well as fiscal policy issues. The conference also injected a historical and institutionalist perspective in the policy discussion by examining the implications of cultural differences in the EU as well as the historical experience of financial crises. Finally, the conference provided empirical evidence regarding key policy choices facing emerging economies in terms of the effects of capital controls and the derivation of an index of financial conditions.
