Special Issue on: "Reshaping Central Banking: Monetary Policy, Lending of Last Resort and Banking Supervision"

Guest Editors:
Donato Masciandaro, Bocconi University, Italy
Marc Quintyn, International Monetary Fund

In a period of rapid innovation and structural changes in the national financial industries, the activity of the central banks in different fields – monetary policy, lending of last resort, payment system, currency markets, banking supervision – as well as their organisation – independence, accountability, transparency – is also changing rapidly. Assessing and addressing these developments has raised important questions that required effective answers by policymakers and central bankers.

This special issue, jointly promoted with the Paolo Baffi Centre for Central Banking and Financial Regulation (Bocconi University), welcomes unpublished papers which discuss the positive as well as normative implications
