What are the macroeconomic and policy implications of new markets and instruments? Can financial innovation make markets more efficient, or does it increase financial instability? Together we will take a closer look at mortgage design, sovereign debt design, and bank debt design (such as cocos and other derivatives), among other topics.

Lord Adair Turner, chaiman of INET and former chairman of Britain's Financial Services Authority and author of the new book "Between Debt and the Devil" will be the Conference's keynote speaker.  

The JRCPPF conference offers a unique and invaluable opportunity to interact with preeminent researchers and policy experts from across the globe who are addressing the most pressing economic issues of our time.
