Summer Workshop on Money, Banking, Payments and Finance
The economic research department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago is hosting a summer workshop on money, banking, payments and finance. This workshop brings together experts from academia and policy institutions around the world to discuss recent developments in the field. The goal of the conference is to provide a frank and critical assessment of all papers presented and to take stock of where we are and where we should be heading. The workshop will take place over 8 full days, August 7 – 14, 2013. On August 10 and 11, the workshop gets a bit more formal with discussants, a conference dinner and a special keynote dinner speaker, Jim Bullard, president and chief executive officer, St Louis Fed.
