From SUERF the European Money and Finance Forum:
SUERF commemorates its 50th anniversary with the publication of a special volume entitled "50 years of Money and Finance: Lessons and Challenges", published to coincide with its 50th Anniversary celebration in Paris. The volume is published by Larcier for SUERF. The researchers who have contributed to the volume were asked to look at the monetary and financial history of the last 50 years, and to summarise the most important trends and experiences and to then draw conclusions for the future. They were asked to identify the main trends in international financial markets, in global and European macroeconomic (im)balances, in European financial integration, in central banking, in banking and securities markets, in financial innovation and in the origins and handling of financial crises. Path-breaking events, politicial decisions and relevant outstanding research contributions in the field since the early 1960s all feature significantly.
