The world faces profound economic, financial, and political uncertainties, but it is unclear to what extent these uncertainties are priced in financial markets and how they affect global economic developments.
We welcome submissions within the broad themes of uncertainty and its implications for asset markets and financial stability. We would welcome particularly theoretical or empirical contributions that address global financial markets. Some illustrative topics/questions include:
The linkage between uncertainty and global financial markets
• How are various types of uncertainty (e.g., political and economic) priced in global financial markets?
• Do different types of uncertainty have different implications for global financial markets?
• Can financial market movements feed back to economic uncertainty?
• How can we use information from financial markets to measure various uncertainty?
The transmission of uncertainty to the real economy and financial stability
• How does uncertainty transmit to the international business cycle?
• What are the effects of uncertainty for international financial stability?
• What is the role of financial intermediaries in the transmission of uncertainty?
• What are the channels of uncertainty in global spillovers?
How should policy making take account of uncertainty?
• How should different types of uncertainty that private agents perceive affect policies on financial stability?
