Having lived through the 2008 market crash and the economic downturn that spread around the world, we understand how devastating and far-reaching the consequences of systemic risk and the bursting of a bubble can be. To explore this important issue, Society of Quantitative Analysts announces its “Fuzzy Day” conference on Systemic Risk, Financial Bubbles & Monetary Policy.
Join us to hear renowned academics and practitioners explore unique perspectives to help understand the deeper issues - agent based models and neuroscience explanations for human behaviour, financial innovation and regulation. Presenters include Richard Bookstaber (Dept of Treasury), Andrew Lo (MIT), Jose Scheinkman (Columbia), Tanju Yorulmazer (Federal Reserve Bank-NY), Edward Hida (Deloitte)…interact and network with your peers on May 22 in mid-town Manhattan!
