Federal Reserve Board of Governors


General Information

Organized by:

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System

(Division of Reserve Bank Operations and Payment Systems)

The Bank of Canada
(Department of Funds Management and Banking, Department of Financial Stability)

The recent financial crisis and the Dodd-Frank Financial Regulatory Reform Act of 2010 emphasized the importance that payment, clearing and settlement systems play in the stability of the financial system. Moreover, the payment landscape continues to change rapidly with the development of new technologies and regulations.

Recent economic research, which draws on techniques and insights from existing monetary, banking, and industrial organization theories, is being used to deepen our understanding of payments-related issues in both research and policy areas. This workshop, organized by the Federal Reserve Board and the Bank of Canada, continues an important dialogue among central banks and academic economists about the foundations of economic models and public policy involving the payments system.



Attendance at the conference is by invitation only.
