Presentation on the financial cycle at an international conference in the Philippines
Last week, Thorvardur Tjörvi Ólafsson, Senior Economist at the Central Bank of Iceland, gave a presentation in Manila at the 6th International Research Conference of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. The title of the conference was 6th BSP International Research Conference - Revisiting macro-financial linkages: Looking back and looking ahead.
In his presentation, Tjörvi, presented the results of a new working paper on the financial cycle in Iceland over a period spanning more than a century. The authors of the working paper, in addition to Tjörvi, are Bjarni G. Einarsson, Kristófer Gunnlaugsson, and Thórarinn G. Pétursson. The paper will be published in a Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas conference volume in 2017. The presentation focused on the definition and measurement of the financial cycle, its main characteristics, and how strikingly strong the spillovers from the global financial cycle seem to be, notwithstanding a wide variety of policy and openness regimes over this long period.
