10.4.18 The future for central bank balance sheets and their use as a macroprudential tool

I presented a keynote speech at a SUERF event in London on Monetary Policy Normalisation: Scenarios and Risks.  The speech set out reasons why central bank balance sheets may not be scaled back to previous levels and how operational parameters surrounding asset purchases and lending arrangements could be set so as to enable central banks to actively affect prudential liquidity metrics, thus influencing financial stability, without compromising their monetary policy objectives.

14.11.16  The Future of London and its Financial Markets

In November 2016 I was asked by the Japanese Financial News Agency to make a presentation to a seminar for senior Japanese businessmen (yes, nearly all men) about the consequences for London of UK Exit from the EU. Although I didn’t read it out, I did release a text to be translated into Japanese for attendees. This link is to the whole text in English – if I ever find out how, I will post a pdf doc that can be downloaded!
