We are delighted to announce a conference at the Bank of England on May 23-24, 2017 in honour of Oswald Distinguished Professor William A. Barnett. The title of the conference is “Financial Services Indices, Liquidity and Economic Activity".

Liquidity plays a pivotal role in financial markets, the banking sector, and the economy as a whole. Since the 2008-09 financial crisis, it is has become increasingly necessary to understand the creation, dissemination, measurement and management of liquidity.

This conference seeks and invites proposals to understand and assess the macroeconomic implications of liquidity, the liquidity creation process and the impacts of liquidity on financial markets and economic activity. Please note collaboration from the Centre for Financial Stability, New York and CFS President L. Goodman.

Please see for further reading on the CFS. Peer reviewed papers will be considered for presentation at the conference, for poster presentation work at the conference or for a special issue of the Journal of Financial Stability. Theoretical, empirical, quantitative, qualitative, institutional, and historical perspectives that address current theory and policy questions are welcome.
