This conference presented new research on topics such as money substitutes, liquidity, and the interplay between money and banking. Models seeking to explain the forces contributing to the financial crisis and the desirability of policy intervention during crisis times were a focus of several scholars at this conference. Additionally, the topics of financial market complexity and transparency were explored.
