Challenges and Solutions
IMF Economic Forum
Date: NOVEMBER 11, 2011
Venue: HQ2 Conference Hall 1
1900 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington, D.C.
As the global economy is slowly recovering from the financial crisis, a number of questions take center stage of discussions about macroeconomic and financial policies. What are the optimal exit strategies from expansionary fiscal and monetary policies? How should monetary and financial policies be designed to mitigate adverse effects of asset price and credit booms? What types of policies are available for developed and emerging economies to cope with the global imbalances?
