18/11/2021 Monetary Policy, Fiscal Policy and Public Debt in a Post COVID World, Paris

Organizers: Vincent Bignon, Stéphane Dupraz and Christoph Grosse Steffen
Fiscal policy has responded to the economic disruptions caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic with stimulus and income-support packages of unprecedented scale, while monetary policy has further enlarged the set of instruments it uses to respond to large shocks in a low r-star environment.  In parallel, the resulting increase in public debt has rekindled debates on the possible constraints put by high levels of public debt on the ability of monetary policy to control inflation, and the impact of inflation on public debt.

This new environment opens numerous questions on how to design monetary and fiscal policies going forward and how they interact in an environment of high public debt, in particular in a monetary union. Will the post-pandemic economy require a different policy mix, and/or a different form of coordination between fiscal and monetary authorities? Do high levels of public debt pose a threat to the central bank’s ability to deliver price stability? Is inflation a feasible and/or desirable solution to high levels of public debt?

The BdF conference aims at bringing together researchers from academia, central banks and other policy institutions to present empirical and theoretical work on monetary policy, fiscal policy, and public debt, with a particular interest in works that speak of their interactions.

Invited lectures will be given by:
  • John H. Cochrane (Hoover Institution, Stanford University and NBER)
  • Ricardo Reis (London School of Economics and CEPR)
  • Federica Romei (University of Oxford and CEPR)
All presentations will be in plenary sessions and each paper will be assigned a discussant. The conference is currently planned as an in-person event in Paris. Should travel restrictions continue to bind by the time of the conference however, it will take place online. Some of the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Monetary and fiscal policy in a world with r*<g
  • Fiscal dominance, fiscal theory of the price level, money-financed stimulus, helicopter money
  • Models of sovereign default
  • Economic history on periods with high public debt
  • Implications for policy coordination within a monetary union
We invite authors to submit completed papers or extended abstracts. Preferences are for completed papers.

If you would like to submit a paper, please upload your paper  by visiting and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper or act as a discussant. You will also be asked to specify your funding requirements. If you do not currently have a CEPR profile, please create a new profile here and then click on the registration link above.

The deadline for paper submission is Tuesday 7 September 2021. Authors of accepted papers will be informed by 1st October 2021. Travel and local accommodation for speakers and discussants from academic institutions will be funded by the Banque de France according to its internal guidelines.

18/11/2021 Frontier Research in Banking, Oslo
Hosted By: Norges Bank
Organizers: Jin Cao, Carola Müller and Kasper F. Roszbach
The evolution of financial intermediation in a changing world, complicated by the COVID-19 Pandemic, brings new challenges to policy makers. Large shocks to the real economy, as well as fiscal stimulus and unconventional monetary policy in response to the pandemic have put the transmission of policies by financial intermediaries and their exposure to financial risks further in focus. Changes in climate and demographic structure are also forcing us to consider the role of banks and non-bank financial institutions.  

This two-day workshop aims to bring together researchers and policymakers working on these issues. The workshop will focus on high-quality research with empirical or theoretical contributions in the field of banking, financial intermediation and financial policies, with a particular but not exclusive interest in the following areas:

  • Banking under low interest rates
  • Heterogeneity in the effects of financial intermediation and financial policies
  • Interactions between monetary policy, macro- and micro-prudential regulations
  • Microdata-based evidence on the effectiveness of banking regulation
  • Digital currencies, Fintech, and non-bank financial intermediation
  • Globalisation and disintermediation in banking
  • The impact of climate change on banking 
  • Financial intermediation in reaction to the COVID-19 Pandemic

We are happy and honored to announce the keynote Hyun Song Shin (Bank for International Settlements and CEPR).
