A decade after the 2008 financial crisis, new political economic imaginaries have emerged to make sense of our financialised world. Critical macro-finance is one of the most important of these trends. It has shed light on the infrastructure of contemporary global finance, the links between shadow banking, money markets and monetary policy, and the evolving governance architecture established in the wreckage of the crash.
To discuss critical macro-finance, WCF is excited to get into conversation with Daniela Gabor, Professor of Economics and Macro-Finance at UWE Bristol. Daniela is working on the intersections of economics, finance and political economy, researching a variety of areas such as shadow banking activities, especially repo markets, and their implications for monetary theory, central banking, sovereign bond markets and regulatory activities.
