Managing Systemic Risk: Lessons from Canada and the United States

Webcast available

Webcast Recap

Systemic financial risk, broadly defined as the widespread failure of a financial system which imposes large negative externalities on the rest of the economy, was a major contributor to the global financial crisis of 2007-2008. 

In the years following the crisis, experts have endeavored to understand its causes and how best to prevent similar crises from happening in the future. Weighing in on this discussion, panelists Steven Schwarcz and Anita Anand, provide insight into managing systemic financial risk from a Canadian and U.S. perspective. Our distinguished panelists will address aspects of the Canadian and US economies that give rise to systemic risk, and will provide policy recommendations aimed at mitigating such risks.
