The ECB and Its Watchers
With an Aachen penny of Charlemagne, Volker Wieland said thank you to Mario Draghi for having attended The ECB and Its Watchers conference so many times during his time as President of the European Central Bank. Current monetary policy issues also gave much to talk about at the 20th edition of the conference.
The Macroeconomic Model Data Base (MMB) now offers 128 models and new technical features. On the open platform developed by Volker Wieland and his team, researchers can share formulas and codes of their models and also reproduce the calculations of others.
In a new brochure, the IMFS gives a retrospective on 20 years of discussions on monetary policy issues at the conference "The ECB and Its Watchers" describing the impulses coming from ECB watchers at the conference.
Since 2018, Roland Broemel has been holding the Chair of Public Law, Economic and Currency Law, Financial Markets Regulation and Legal Theory. In an interview in the IMFS Annual Report 2018, he describes his current research projects as well as the legal challenges in financial supervision and digitalization.
