ECB-Conference "The Optimal Size of the Financial Sector" - European Central Bank
This conference brings together senior policy-makers and academics to examine the circumstances in which the financial sector could be considered “too big”. In doing so, the conference is designed around three sessions, each devoted to a particular mechanism by which an oversized financial sector could damage financial stability and economic growth. Participants in the first session will consider whether an oversized financial sector could attract too much high-quality human capital. The second session will focus on whether an oversized financial sector could divert financial capital away from productive projects and towards asset price bubbles. And, in the third session, participants will discuss whether oversized financial sectors might be more exposed to systemic risk. The conference will conclude with a panel discussion to examine the implications of these three mechanisms for public policy.
