ADEMU Workshop "Macroeconomics and Financial Imbalances and Spillovers"

The research in Work Package 3 of the ADEMU project focuses on spillover effects between member states that are caused by shocks to fiscal and financial variables and on the role of international imbalances in macroeconomic and financial variables due to asymmetric patterns of economic interdependence within the euro area and between the EU states.  The main subject of the workshop is the extent to which these effects and imbalances have contributed to recent macroeconomic instability and the potential role of macroprudential regulation.
