Financial Stability: The Promise and Perils of Technological Innovation

30 Oct
Financial Stability: The Promise and Perils of Technological Innovation
Part of Financial Stability and Technological Innovation in a Post-COVID-19 World: Law, Policy and Economics

Event abstract

In this first workshop we seek to address the meta-questions concerning financial stability and technological innovation in a post-COVID world. This entails a critical assessment of the post-GFC financial reform efforts, the relaxation of certain regulatory measures in the wake of COVID-19 and possible future reforms in the light of the most recent experiences. From a technological/computer science perspective we look at the latest developments in the FinTech and RegTech space, as well as the latest regulatory efforts concerning crypto-assets. A key issue will be whether, as suggested by Lawrence Lessig, problems can actually ‘be coded away’ also with a view to enhancing financial stability and tackling systemic risk.
