Summary. While most central banks’ mandate is focused on price stability, a major legacy from the Great Recession has been that price stability requires to look at financial stability from a systemic point of view and this in turn requires to look at the financial system as a multi-level network. This session discusses how the lessons from financial network models are applied in the practice to financial stability and macroprudential policies and what challenges regulators have to address in terms of both data and concepts.
