Venue: Room 323, Level 3, Owen G Glenn Building (The University of Auckland Business School)
Host: EUC Network and The Europe Institute
The global financial crisis (GFC) has reminded countries vividly how integrated the world financial economy is. The experience of the European and Asian countries in particular has shown that where countries have close ties it is possible to mitigate the impact of the shock. At the same time, close ties magnified the shock more widely. The purpose of this symposium is to bring together researchers from Europe, Asia, Australasia and the Americas to discuss their research findings and consider what lessons each can learn from each other. It draws in particular on two major projects, one undertaken by the Shadow Financial Regulatory Committees for Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Japan, the United States and Latin America on the impact of the Global Financial Crisis, published as The World in Crisis available from http://www.aei/org/files/2011/11/21/-theworld-in-crisis_1159482291046.pdf and the second, organised by the Asian Development Bank Institute on Implications of the Global Financial Crisis for Financial Reform and Regulation in Asia edited by Masahiro Kawai, David Mayes and Peter Morgan and published by Edward Elgar.
