Topic: Building self-confidence in young minds! Do teachers have any role to play?
The world has witnessed many turmoils in the past which includes economic crisis, financial melt-downs, sovereign crisis and instability of banking and financial institutions. Global financial meltdown indicates that monetary and other important economic policy measures would not work effectively when there is financial instability. Research on global economy and markets indicate that when an economy suffers from instability, it disturbs normal functioning of the markets, affects banking and financial institutions, more particularly, the asset-liability structures, which in turn, distorts lending functions to the core-sectors of the economy. Again, another important cause as to why ‘financial instability’ affects an economy is owing to the fact that there would be visibly noticeable ‘asset bubbles’ building up on account of irrational price-increases in asset values. When the bubbles start bursting down, a huge volume of ‘toxic assets’ appear on the balance-sheets of the banks thus forcing them to resort to reduction in their lending. Understandably, all these unsavoury developments further complicates the monetary and financial systems.
Yet another lesson to be learnt from the financial meltdown is that excessive risk-taking resorted to by banking and financial institutions has caused a kind of negative ‘spill-overs’ on the macro economy. So, a highly stable financial system is central to monetary and other economic policy initiatives of the government. Also, the leverage levels of banking and financial institutions should be kept at prudent levels in order to address issues such as ‘too-big-to-fail’ and ‘toxic assets’. What we are highlighting here are some crucial parameters although there are many aspects and good practices have to be implemented by the regulators and the financial insitutions.
The European Central Bank (ECB) had to take a few hard decisions which includes advising banks to remove the ‘toxic assets’ hugely prevalent on their balance sheets in the form of write-offs. Undoubtedly, this drastic step has caused huge pressure on the profit-margins of the banking and financial institutions.
The financial melt-downs have taught hard lessons. Firstly, every institution, be it a bank or government, should learn market discipline as it is very crucial to ensure stability in the entire economic system including banking and financial institutions. Improved regulations would address these issues. Secondly, the central bank should keep monitoring key variables such as inflation rates, interest rates, export performance etc., in order to ensure that the economy is moving in the right direction as planned.
The upcoming conference in Zurich, Switzerland intends to achieve the following objectives. The conference would
a) Discuss vital economic issues affecting the global economy in general and the EU economy, in particular;
b) Analyze the root causes of financial meltdown and the ways and means by which monetary policy of governments could help avert such meltdowns in the future;
c) Provide an ideal platform for researchers, economists, bankers and practitioners to share their research and practical experiences in all the major issues highlighted, as above; and
d) Offer suitable solutions to ensure an orderly growth of the EU economies, stable monetary and financial system so as to bring about prosperity and sustainable economic growth to the World, in the long-run.
