1st Joint Bank of England-Banque de France–IMF–OECD
Workshop on International Capital Flows and Financial Policies
Participants at this virtual event came together to discuss the benefits and risks of global capital flows and advanced the debate on the appropriate financial policy toolkit. Focus topics included:
Going beyond traditional statistics: mapping of capital flows and policy implications; research that tries to identify the “ultimate investor”, and potentially policy issues related to tax evasion, FDI and profit-shifting.
The changing composition of flows: the shift away from banks to non-banks and corporates and financial stability implications.
Surges, stops and “normals” for capital flows. The optimal policy mix in the face of spillovers and its effectiveness of tackling capital flow volatility.
Financial integration or fragmentation, capital controls, and pre-conditions for further liberalisation.
