Models for Macroprudential Policy
4-day course on designing models for assessing financial instability risks.
This course is designed for people working on issues related to financial stability and macroprudential policies. The participants will be presented to models developed for supporting financial-stability frameworks. We will discuss the latest achievements in the field and provide practical advice on developing models for assessing risks to financial instability.
Don't worry! We will find a suitable time of the day for you. Participants will be divided into groups by their time zones.
Day 1. Financial stability frameworks.
Day 2. Macroprudential policy. Estimation of the financial cycle.
Day 3. Financial crisis in DSGE models.
Day 4. Stress tester: building scenarios to assess financial instability risks.

Turning Interest Into Action
After the global financial crisis interest in financial stability issues and macroprudential tools increased substantially. One of the main research areas of The Better Policy Project is creating financial stability frameworks and sharing them with central banks all over the world.
