More than 60 countries and multinational organizations produce financial stability reports. All are political documents that rarely identify actual financial crises in advance, especially if risks arise from government-regulated institutions or are linked to government policies that promote financial excesses such as lax lending standards, over-stimulative monetary policy, or unsustainable exchange rates.
Financial activities believed to be fail-safe frequently are not. Successfully identifying the activities that result in disastrous losses before they materialize requires imagination, intuition, and luck. Statistical models rarely predict economic turning points.
Join AEI as six financial-sector experts use data, statistics, and their keen intuition and in-depth knowledge of our financial system to propose risks that could trigger the next financial crisis.
