At the University of Michigan's Center on Finance, Law & Policy, an important project is underway on The Central Bank of the Future. It’s a great, timely topic. The project’s website explains that: “In partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, this project explores the mandate and design of central banks to consider whether they might play an even stronger role in promoting financial inclusion, financial health, and a more inclusive economy. More broadly, it creates a vision for what the "central bank of the future" might look like and focuses in particular on how emerging technology could support central banks in their efforts to promote financial inclusion, growth, and development.”
The March 20, 2020, deadline is fast approaching to submit academic papers, policy proposals, and pitches for technology products or services to the Central Bank of the Future Conference (w/ co-host Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco), November 16-17, 2020. A link to all of the details of the call for papers is here.
