Housing markets and the macroeconomy: challenges for monetary policy and financial stability
A Conference by Deutsche Bundesbank, the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the International Monetary Fund
Recent developments in housing markets have demonstrated the importance of the housing sector for private households, the financial sector and the economy as a whole. Over the past decade, several countries experienced sharply rising house prices followed by severe slumps. These developments had dramatic consequences for the international financial system and the world economy and confronted policy makers with a number of serious challenges. Central banks and other institutions responsible for financial stability have responded by going to substantial effort to prevent a repeat of such developments in the future.
Against this backdrop, the Deutsche Bundesbank, the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the International Monetary Fund are organising a conference entitled "Housing markets and the macroeconomy: Challenges for monetary policy and financial stability".
