The U.S. dollar plays a preeminent role in the global economy. The status of the U.S. dollar impinges on the functioning of financial markets and the effectiveness of policy instruments. This conference aims to garner the insights of researchers, policymakers, and market experts on the evolving roles of the U.S. dollar, the consequences of these roles for the Federal Reserve’s mandate, and future prospects for these roles.
The Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York are jointly organizing the second conference on the International Roles of the U.S. Dollar. The conference will feature a keynote address by Darrell Duffie, panel discussions on the themes of the conference, and paper presentations with discussants. The organizers welcome theoretical and empirical paper submissions that address the drivers, consequences, and policy implications of the international roles of the dollar, with an emphasis on the following areas:
- The policy toolkit and dollar roles: How monetary policy regimes, central bank dollar facilities, prudential regulations, and capital flow management tools engage with the dollar’s roles in international trade and finance and as a reserve currency. Financial institutions and funding markets: Roles and activities of bank and nonbank financial institutions in dollar funding markets, including in offshore financial centers.
- Liquidity and asset safe-haven status: How Treasury and sovereign bond market liquidity and trading arrangements, or new payment technologies and digital assets, engage with the choice of currencies for transactions.
- Hedging and foreign exchange derivatives: The use of the dollar in international financial markets, with a focus on derivatives for the hedging of dollar exposures and on the depth of dollar financial markets.
The deadline for paper submissions is February 15, 2023. Please send completed papers to DollarRolesConference@ny.frb.org. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by March 15, 2023. While an in-person meeting is planned, the specific event format remains to be determined. Travel funding may be available for academic presenters and discussants. Please note that conference attendance is by invitation only.
