Interdisciplinary Approaches to Financial Stability

Logo of the OFR and FSOC conference held on January 30, 2015

The conference brought together regulators, policymakers, financial market participants, and academic researchers from a broad range of disciplines to discuss ways to bolster financial stability. The conference explored how methods from diverse fields, such as system analysis, agent-based modeling, and data visualization, can be used to identify, measure, monitor, and mitigate risks in the financial system. It also examined how risk is measured, monitored, and mitigated in other sectors and contexts, such as in supply chains and electrical grids, and in the context of climate change; how stakeholders make tradeoffs between stability, efficiency, and innovation in these contexts; and how lessons from these contexts can be applied to the financial system.
