BIS Looks at Cross Border Financial Linkage and Global Interconnectedness

We have note many times here on this blog that the global financial system is now highly interconnected and that a problem anywhere in the world can lead to a problem everywhere. Apparently the Bank for International Setttlements (BIS) agrees as they have just wrapped up two major events related to this topic. Below are links to the BIS web site on this topic. After that I have pasted in the agenda for the recent conference on interconnectedness so you can see how important this issue clearly is to the BIS.


Cross Border Financial Linkages

"Ever more extensive global financial linkages are changing in ways that have significant implications for policy. Asia-Pacific countries have experienced a particularly rapid growth in financial flows since the crisis. Against this background, the BIS's Representative Office for Asia and the Pacific and the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) co-hosted a conference on cross-border financial linkages with a view to fostering research on implications of these important developments. The conference marked the completion of the BIS Asian Office's research programme in this area."
