Last Friday and Saturday, the JIMF 4th Annual Conference at UC Santa Cruz took place, organized by Joshua Aizenman (UCSC & NBER), Robert Dekle (USC) & James Lothian (Fordham University & JIMF) and sponsored by JIMF, SCCIE-UCSC, and the FRBs of Atlanta and San Francisco. I didn’t get a chance to go, which was unfortunate as the papers were relevant to thinking about how the international financial system is linked to the events of 2008.
Here are the links to the papers.
