This conference brought together leading scholars to explore the interplay between liquidity and solvency as they apply to financial markets and the consequences for the design of policy. Speakers presented liquidity-based models and empirical evidence that measured the importance of liquidity risk as reflected by financial market and macroeconomic data. In addition, the impact of alternative market structures, including exchange-based trading and over-the-counter trading for derivative securities, was investigated.
