REGULATIONS – EXPERIENCES IN BANKING – LIVE TALK
We are delighted to announce the online debate FMRS Rome II: Regulations – Experiences in Banking that we will organize in the broader context of the Free Market Road Show 2021.
The Maastricht Treaty, which established the principles of the economic governance of the EU and the euro, was the result of a compromise between different views on policy and institutions. Until the financial crisis of 2007–2012, that compromise had delivered macroeconomic stability. Based on the idea that macroeconomic stability could be assured in any circumstance by the combination of an independent central bank with a narrow mandate in terms of price stability and centrally defined fiscal rules setting public deficit and public debt limits at the national level.
The financial crisis of 2007–2012 was the first wake up call to the inadequacy of this architecture when facing a large systemic crisis. After covid pandemic wave it’s the time to discuss an other important transformation to meet future challenges.
