Dear BLPB Readers:
Below is an excerpt from the call for papers for the upcoming Wharton Conference on Liquidity and Financial Fragility
"Liquidity and financial fragility concerns have captured the attention of financial market participants, macroeconomists, and policymakers in recent years. The pandemic featured unprecedented liquidity dry-up and fragility in financial markets, followed by massive policy interventions and inflationary pressures not seen in decades. The collapses of the Silicon Valley Bank and Credit Suisse revealed neglected risks and have forced depositors and investors to rethink some of their decisions. Fifteen years after the global financial crisis, the financial system does not appear to be safer and the need to better understand the sources and consequences of financial fragility remains high.
With this goal, we are resuming the Wharton Conference on Liquidity and Financial Fragility, following the success of the eight editions that took place before the pandemic. The next edition, hosted by the Wharton Initiative on Financial Policy and Regulation (WIFPR), will take place at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA) starting on the morning of Friday, October 6, 2023, and ending in the afternoon of Saturday, October 7, 2023. Details of previous conferences can be found on the conference website: https://wifpr.wharton.upenn.edu/wharton-liquidity-conference/"
The complete call for papers is here. The deadline to submit papers for consideration is July 1, 2023.
