In the wake of an unprecedented housing bubble and global recession, scholars and policymakers have acknowledged the necessity of macro-prudential policies in the financial sector. The success of these policies in preventing a repeat occurrence, however, will depend on how they address two challenges.

Second, they must moderate the endogenous swings in debt that characterize the modern global economy. This talk will discuss these lessons learned and the policy challenges ahead.
